The Georgia Commission for Service and Volunteerism is seeking proposals from eligible organizations interested in operating AmeriCorps programs to strengthen communities through National Service and Volunteerism. Eligible organizations include non-profit and faith-based organizations with 501(c)3 status in the State of Georgia, educational institutions, and state and local government entities.
AmeriCorps programs address critical community needs in key focus areas including education, disasters, economic opportunity, environmental stewardship, healthy futures, and veterans and military families. Sample activities include tutoring and mentoring youth, response to local disasters, restoring natural habitats, and job training/placement. AmeriCorps members also mobilize community volunteers and strengthen the capacity of the organizations where they serve.
