What is an AmeriCorps planning grant? Planning grants provide community organizations with the resources needed to prepare to host an AmeriCorps program.
Planning grant recipients will lead community partners in a 10-month program design process. The goal is to submit a successful AmeriCorps program proposal for a future competition for operating awards. These programs will not host AmeriCorps service members during the life of the planning grant.
While there are no planning grant recipients for 2021-22, additional opportunities to participate may become available at a later date.
