AmeriCorps is a national service program that helps meet community needs through the efforts of AmeriCorps members.  AmeriCorps programs are hosted by non-profit organizations, state agencies and local governments, elementary and secondary schools, Indian tribes, colleges and universities, community and faith-based organizations, and intermediary organizations representing a combination of these or similar groups, working together. The AmeriCorps State program offers different types of funding to meet the needs of various host agencies.  Planning grants are also available to help organizations develop their ideas for leading an AmeriCorps program.

 

In 2012, AmeriCorps members serving in Iowa tutor at risk youth and run after school programs; provide outreach and services to victims of child and domestic abuse; build low-income housing and improve home energy efficiency; and improve nutrition through community gardens.  Potential applicants may do similar activities or use members to address other identified needs in their community.
