Sorry for the cross-posting.
This could be a great way to get some full-time help implementing High Quality Plans for SET regions, in addition to dealing with other issues at the local level. Local governments and tribal organizations are eligible to apply.
This looks like it could be useful for some SET work in the regions. Suzette
Americorp is launching a new grant program: Operation AmeriCorps. The notice of funding opportunity (NOFO) was officially released on Thursday and can be a resource for place-based work across the Administration. Operation AmeriCorps is open exclusively to tribal and local governments and is designed to help them address their most pressing local problems by using AmeriCorps to implement a holistic solution.
Operation AmeriCorps can help tribal and local governments (including cities, counties, towns, and school districts) fulfill big goals related to existing administration initiatives such as MBK, Promise Zones, SC2 and others. It may also be relevant to specific place-based work that you all are undertaking at your agencies. For the first time, this NOFO allows applicants to request AmeriCorps State and National, AmeriCorps VISTA, and AmeriCorps NCCC resources in a single application (which starts with a 10 page concept paper due before January 13, 2015). More information, including the Notice of Funding Opportunity and the schedule of TTA calls, is on our website: www.nationalservice.gov/operation-americorps. Applicants should reach out to their State Service Commission for details on the submission process.
