The New York State Commission on National and Community Service, a Governor appointed commission, housed under the The New York State Commission on National and Community Service is seeking proposals for competitive AmeriCorps funding.
The AmeriCorps funding is a national competition carried out by the Corporation for National and Community Service.
The Commission plans, through this RFP process, to identify those proposals that New York State recommends for consideration and ultimate selection by the Corporation. Selected proposals by the New York State Commission are not binding on the Corporation, which has sole authority to select which proposals to fund.
Any application in response to this RFP is for this national competitive pool of funding. The proposals forwarded to the Corporation by the Commission will compete with proposals from states across the country and from United States territories.
The purpose of this RFP is to identify strong proposals from New York State Agencies to better the chances of awards for programs in the state.
There are six focus areas:
- Disaster Services
- Economic Opportunity
- Environmental Stewardship
- Healthy Futures
- Veterans and Military Families.
