AmeriCorps Planning Grant

Posted by PennSERVE on October 30, 2017

You’ve thought about AmeriCorps, but you’re just not sure. You like the idea of having an AmeriCorps program but you don’t know where to begin. You have a good idea for how AmeriCorps members can serve your community, but you need time to think it through.

Sound familiar?

If so, please consider applying for an AmeriCorps Planning Grant through PennSERVE! This new short-term grant opportunity is for organizations that need support to develop plans to implement an AmeriCorps program. Planning Grant activities involve work to establish a new program in Pennsylvania or to replicate a successful existing program in unserved or underserved areas of the state.

A Letter of Intent is due on November 6 and applications are due December 4. The planning grant period will be approximately mid-February – August 2018.

Please review the Request For Applications. Submit questions to

We look forward to hearing from you!

PS – PennSERVE just released the 2018-2020 Pennsylvania State Service Plan! Find out what we’ll be working on and see how your organization can fit in! Download the Plan on our website.
