The Delaware Commission on Community Service and Volunteerism helps improve lives, strengthen communities, and foster civic engagement through opportunities to serve and volunteer. This is accomplished through partnerships with public or private nonprofit organizations, including labor organizations; faith-based and other community organizations; institutions of higher education; government entities within states or territories (e.g., cities, counties); Indian Tribes; partnerships or consortia.
AmeriCorps funding comes to Delaware through two separate funding streams: formula and competitive funds from the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS). Well-managed organizations with strong organizational competencies tend to be most successful in administering complex grants like AmeriCorps. To help you determine whether your organization is poised to successfully administer an AmeriCorps grant, we recommend that you complete the AmeriCorps Readiness Assessment. Please note, a satisfactory score does not guarantee AmeriCorps funding through the ServeDelaware or the CNCS.
If your organization is considering submitting an application to sponsor an AmeriCorps program, please review the frequently asked questions. Other useful tools to help you decide if you should apply for an AmeriCorps State or National grant is the fit finder on the Corporation for National and Community Service website.
