The Corporation for National and Community Service and the Hawai‘i Commission for National and Community Service announces the availability of AmeriCorps*State Formula funds for the 2017-2018 program year.

AmeriCorps, “the domestic Peace Corps,” is a national service program, which engages Americans of all ages and backgrounds in team-based, results-driven service in the areas of public safety, education, literacy and tutoring, the environment, basic human needs and Homeland Security. In exchange for their service, AmeriCorps members receive a living stipend and an education award for post-secondary education expenses upon completion of their term of service.  AmeriCorps and the Hawaii Commission strive to strengthen citizenship and the ethic of service by assisting communities in addressing their toughest challenges.

Through the AmeriCorps Program Grant, agencies sponsor AmeriCorps members who serve to implement community service initiatives. Eligible agencies include community based non-profit organizations, faith-based organizations, state and local government entities, and school districts. Agencies that apply must be able to demonstrate the capacity to administer a federal program, have a detailed plan of action, strong connections to the community it is planning to serve, a real need for the proposed service within the community, and the ability to raise the required matching funds.

All applications must be submitted to the Hawai‘i Commission for National and Community Service via eGrants by Thursday, May 18, 2017 at 5:00 PM.  For new/recompeting programs, please also e-mail a 1 page summary of your program proposal to hicncs@hawaii.edu

There will be a Clarification Period with HCNCS staff May 18 – June 15, 2017.  You must have someone knowledgable about your application available during this time.  Failure to respond to requests for additional information in a timely fashion will result in the removal of applications from consideration.

For more information, please contact the Hawai‘i Commission staff at (808) 956-8145.  This Notice of Federal Funding Opportunity (Notice) should be read together with the AmeriCorps regulations 45 CFR Sections 2520 – 2550 and the Application Instructions.
