2019-2020 AmeriCorps State Request for Applications - Competitive Pool
On October 15, 2018, the New Mexico Commission for Community Volunteerism
released its Request for Applications, based on the Corporation for National
and Community Service’s
Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) for the 2019-2020
Program Year. The 2019 competition will target AmeriCorps grant making on the
six national focus areas identified in the
Serve America Act and the agency's five-year Strategic
: disaster services, economic opportunity, education, environmental
stewardship, healthy futures, and veterans and military families. In order to
maximize the impact of the public investment in national service, CNCS will
fund programs that can demonstrate community impact and solve community
problems using an evidence-based or evidence-informed approach.
Through the 2019 competition, CNCS seeks to prioritize the investment of
national service resources in Economic Opportunity, Education, Healthy Futures, Veterans and Military Families, Rural Intermediaries, Safer Communities, and
Faith-Based Organizations. CNCS will continue to focus on national service
programs that fall within the six focus areas previously mentioned. See RFA
