AmeriCorps NCCC Seeking Proposals – Sept 1

Posted by AmeriCorps NCCC North Central Region on July 28, 2020

AmeriCorps National Civilian Community Corps (NCCC) is seeking proposals which address a compelling community need(s). NCCC strengthens communities and develops leaders through a full-time, team-based, residential national service program. NCCC partners with a variety of nonprofit organizations, tribal, federal, state, and local agencies to help meet a community need that would not be fully addressed without additional assistance. Projects typically last 6-8 weeks although shorter periods are possible. Types of service NCCC teams can perform include disaster services, energy conservation, infrastructure improvement, urban and rural development, and environmental stewardship. There is no charge for labor and teams provide their own transportation, however NCCC requests sponsors provide a place for the team to sleep and shower along with assistance with food or kitchen facilities to cook on. With the current environment, NCCC has developed protocols for social distancing, cleaning, housing, use of face coverings, and health screenings based on guidance from the CDC and other experts.

AmeriCorps NCCC’s concept paper for their Round A timeframe (January 6 – March 11, 2021) is September 1, 2020, and they’re hosting two webinars for potential program applicants. (See info about webinars in Miscellaneous section.)
