2018-2019 AmeriCorps State Request for Applications - Formula Pool

On March 29, 2018 the New Mexico Commission for Community Volunteerism releases its AmeriCorps State Program Application for the 2018-2019 Program Year. The 2018 “Formula” competition targets AmeriCorps grant making on the six national focus areas identified in the Serve America Act and the Commission’s Strategic Plan, which includes the following: disaster services, economic opportunity, education, environmental stewardship, healthy futures, and veterans and military families. In order to maximize the impact of public investment in national service, the Commission seeks to fund programs that can demonstrate community impact and solve community problems using an evidence-based or evidence-informed approach.

This funding competition is called “Formula” because the Corporation for National and Community Service uses a population based formula to distribute AmeriCorps program funding to each state. The Commission’s application and review process is designed to identify and determine which programs will be funded with these formula funds.

2015-2016 AmeriCorps Formula Grant RFP - PDF

AmeriCorps Funding Opportunity in New Mexico - PDF

This RFP is for organizations interested in receiving an operational grant to bring AmeriCorps Members to their organization, or receiving a planning grant to design an AmeriCorps program. Selected organizations receive grants to support AmeriCorps members placed in service to meet critical needs in New Mexico.

Each year, 80,000 Americans serve our nation in local and national nonprofit groups through AmeriCorps. With funding from the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) and administration by NMCCV, AmeriCorps members dedicate a year of their life to intensive community service in exchange for a small living stipend and college scholarship. The experience often leads to a life enriched by volunteering and in many cases, a career in nonprofits or public service.

AmeriCorps programs address critical community needs including Education, Disaster Services, Economic Opportunity, Environmental Stewardship, Healthy Futures, and Veterans & Military Families. Sample activities include tutoring and mentoring youth, response to local disasters, restoring natural habitats, respite care to seniors and job training/placement. AmeriCorps members also mobilize community volunteers and strengthen the capacity of the organizations where they serve.
