AmeriCorps NCCC Now Accepting Service Project Proposals for 2014

AmeriCorps NCCC is now accepting service project proposals for 2014. AmeriCorps NCCC (National Civilian Community Corps) is a full-time, team-based service program for men and women aged 18-24. The mission of AmeriCorps NCCC is to strengthen communities and develop leaders through direct, team-based national and community service.

Now is your chance to take advantage of an affordable way for your community to get short-term projects completed. Whether it's blazing trails, installing rain gardens, building homes, or supporting disaster recovery efforts, the NCCC is the program to help you achieve your goals!

AmeriCorps NCCC Atlantic Region (states served: CT, DE, MA, MD, ME, NH, NJ, NY, PA, RI, VT, DC, Puerto Rico, and the US Virgin Islands) invites prospective Project Sponsors to apply for an NCCC team in the 2014 program year, beginning March 2014. Deployment of teams is organized by rounds (4 to 8 weeks).

There is a simple two-step process to apply for a team:
  • A Project Concept Form (attached for your convenience)
  • A Project Application. 
Upon successful review of the Concept Form, you will receive an invitation to submit a Project Application. An Assistant Program Director, members of the NCCC program staff are available to provide technical assistance with developing your project idea, developing a work plan, and preparing the application. If you have any questions, please email Amanda McCarty, assistant program director at: amccarty@cns.gov or call (410) 642-2411 x6329
