2022-2023 AmeriCorps Texas – Planning Grant

AmeriCorps is a national service program designed to improve lives and foster civic engagement utilizing AmeriCorps Members in full- or part-time terms of service. Members commit their time to address critical community needs like increasing academic achievement, mentoring youth, fighting poverty, sustaining national parks, preparing for disasters, and more.

This Notice is for AmeriCorps Texas Planning Grants. A planning grant provides financial support to organizations that will be developing an AmeriCorps program that will place AmeriCorps members in service solely within Texas. Grant recipients are awarded up to $75,000 for a 12-month planning period to start September 1, 2022 and are expected to be better prepared to compete for an AmeriCorps program grant in the following grant cycle, 2023-2024. A planning grant will not be used to support AmeriCorps members.
