AmeriCorps encourages organizations that have never received funding from the Corporation or AmeriCorps to apply. The general practice is to award no more than 50 member positions to organizations receiving an AmeriCorps grant for the first time.
AmeriCorps grants can be awarded on a cost reimbursement or fixed amount basis. Matching funds requirements vary depending upon the type of grant award. See the application instructions for complete details.
A first-time successful applicant is required to match 24% for the first 3-year funding period. Starting with year 4, the match requirement gradually increases every year to 50% by year 10. A table is provided in the application instructions.
