AmeriCorps Works for Ohio!

ServeOhio is pleased to release our 2019 Notice of Funding Opportunity for Ohio AmeriCorps grants. Grants are available with Ohio organizations to support local needs around safety, health, nutrition, hunger, employment, STEM education, veterans and military families, and rural communities. Community and faith-based nonprofit organizations, higher education institutions, local governments and consortiums are eligible to apply.  Learn more about AmeriCorps here.  

How can an AmeriCorps grant work in my community? 

Grants support individuals to become AmeriCorps members and provide community-based activities. For example, AmeriCorps members in Dayton support young adults with more than 2,400 hours of employment services.  In Columbus, AmeriCorps members meet with neighborhood families to provide early education literacy skills to more than 100 children.  AmeriCorps members in Cincinnati bring STEM education to more than 3,800 K-12 youth in local schools.  Here are more details about the impact of Ohio AmeriCorps programs

In what communities can AmeriCorps work? 

AmeriCorps members serve across the state of Ohio in communities of all sizes and abilities including rural and urban areas.  Right now, more than 900 AmeriCorps members are serving through more than twenty AmeriCorps programs.  A detailed program map and listing can be found here 

How can I learn more about AmeriCorps grants?

Attend an upcoming information webinar in October.  The application timeline can be found on the ServeOhio Grants-Funding page.
