AmeriCorps Funds Now Available from Serve Illinois

23 Sep 2020

Bring AmeriCorps to your organization!


Funding is available for organizations interested in administering AmeriCorps programs in Illinois! The grant places AmeriCorps Members in communities to improve education and health care, protect public safety, safeguard the environment, provide disaster relief, and promoting civic engagement through service. Last year, Serve Illinois’ AmeriCorps programs invested over $104 million into Illinois communities and served over 400,000 people.


AmeriCorps members receive student loan deferment and training. Full-time members are also eligible to receive a modest living allowance and health insurance. Members who successfully complete their service receive an educational award to help pay for college, graduate school, vocational training, or to pay off student loans. If the member is 55 or over, they may transfer the education award to a child, grandchild, or foster child.


Applications are due by November 29, 2020. Funded programs will begin their work in July or August of 2021.
