CNCS Publishes Funding Opportunity; Identifies Economic Opportunity, Disaster Services, Services to Veterans and Military Families among Emphases
Sep 9, 2013

The Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) has published its Notice of Federal Funding Opportunity Notice which establishes that it will focus grant making for fiscal year 2014 in six focus areas.

  • Disaster Services
  • Economic Opportunity
  • Education
  • Environmental Stewardship
  • HealthyFutures
  • Veterans and Military Families

    Applicants shall provide evidence that the proposed intervention is effective for the proposed population and community challenge. In order to maximize the impact of the public investment in national service, CNCS will provide grants to programs that demonstrate that they will engage AmeriCorps members in an evidence-based or evidence-informed approach to providing a service intervention that will result in intended solutions to community problems (e.g., based on proposed program’s performance and evaluation data or research demonstrating the effectiveness of a similar intervention). Applicants will be awarded points for providing evidence that their proposed intervention will lead to the outcomes identified in the theory of change (logic model). Applicants shall provide evidence that the proposed intervention is effective for the proposed population and community challenge.

    Public or private nonprofit organizations, including faith-based and other community organizations; institutions of higher education; government entities within states or territories (e.g., cities, counties); labor organizations; partnerships and consortia; Tribes; and intermediaries planning to subgrant awarded funds are encouraged to apply.

    Indian Tribes are eligible to apply to this Notice; however a separate Notice of Federal Funding Opportunity for Indian Tribes for either fully operational or planning grants will be released later in the fall with an application deadline of spring 2014.

    The workforce community can find full application details on grants.gov under the CNCS menu selection.

    Applications are due by January 8, 2014.
