Eligible organizations include public or private nonprofit organizations, faith-based organizations, educational institutions, and state or local government entities.
Proposals from first-time applicants will be accepted for AmeriCorps State formula consideration. First-time applicants must propose to engage a minimum of five (5) and no more than ten (10) Member Service Years (MSYs). One MSY is the equivalent of one full-time AmeriCorps Member.
