Current Funding Opportunities for Federal Fiscal Year 2023

AmeriCorps State Competitive Operational Grants and Public Health AmeriCorps

Serve Washington is pleased to announce the 2023 AmeriCorps State Competitive Request for Grant Applications to meet state and local challenges through service and volunteer action. There are three opportunities for funding:. Organizations should pay particular attention to which opportunity to apply for. You may only apply to one opportunity.

New/Recompete AmeriCorps Grants are for organizations ready to implement an AmeriCorps program and are not already funded by Serve Washington OR are for organizations that have completed a three-year operational grant and are looking to renew another three-year operational grant. If you are new to AmeriCorps in general, you may want to consider a planning grant opportunity, which will be available spring of 2023.

AmeriCorps Continuation Grants are currently funded operational grants entering year two or year three of a three-year cycle.  This includes PHA grants entering year two.

Public Health AmeriCorps Grants - NEW ONLY - are for organizations ready to implement an AmeriCorps program and are not already funded by Serve Washington and meet the purpose of the specialty funding as described in the PHA Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) below.  PHA has two main goals; one, to help meet public health needs of local communities by providing needed capacity and support in state and local public health settings and advancing more equitable health outcomes for communities who are currently or historically underserved and two, to provide pathways to good, quality public health-related careers by providing exposure through onsite experience, training, and more, with a focus on recruiting AmeriCorps members who reflect the communities in which they will serve.

To request these documents in alternate format, please contact us via email or 360-902-0656.
