AmeriCorps NCCC’s Application Season January 5, 2018, is OPEN!
Each year, AmeriCorps NCCC engages teams of members in projects in communities across the United States. Service projects, which typically last from six to eight weeks, address critical needs related to natural and other disasters, infrastructure improvement, environmental stewardship and conservation, energy conservation, and urban and rural development. Members mentor students, construct and rehabilitate low-income housing, respond to natural disasters, clean up streams, help communities develop emergency plans, and address countless other local needs.
Sponsoring organizations request the assistance of AmeriCorps NCCC teams by submitting a project application
to the regional campus
that covers that organization’s state. The campuses provide assistance in completing the application, developing a work plan, and preparing the project sponsor for the arrival of the AmeriCorps NCCC team.
Who can apply:
- Non-profits—secular and faith based
- Local municipalities
- State governments
- Federal government
- National or state parks
- Indian tribes
