AmeriCorps National Program Information

AmeriCorps National Grantees

AmeriCorps National grants are made directly by the Corporation for National and Community Service to public or private nonprofit organizations, institutions of higher education, government entities within states or territories and Indian Tribes.

AmeriCorps*National programs engage AmeriCorps members in providing direct service to address unmet community needs. Programs design service activities for a team of members serving full- or part-time for up to one year. Sample activities include tutoring and mentoring youth, assisting veterans, building homes and restoring parks. Priority service areas identified include Education, Healthy Futures, Clean Energy / Environment, Veterans and Opportunity. Members also help to recruit community volunteers to expand the reach and effectiveness of the organization where they serve.

AmeriCorps National Consultation Process

The Corporation expects State Commissions and multi-state grantees to consult and coordinate activities at the local level, as specified in Section 131 of the National Community Service Act (NCSA). This consultation is designed to ensure the most effective use of national service resources and lead to enhanced coordination among AmeriCorps programs. After all National applications have been submitted, the Corporation will solicit State Commission input on National applicants proposing to operate in their state.

OneStar is always excited to learn of organizations proposing to place AmeriCorps members in Texas!
