AmeriCorps Planning Grants

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.
