Planning Grants

Planning Grant Competition Dates

Planning grants provide funding to help organizations develop new AmeriCorps programs to address community challenges. Planning grants are cost reimbursement grants up to $150,000. 

Planning grant applications are accepted year-round. For planning grantees that choose to apply for a full AmeriCorps program and are successful, we strive to minimize the time it takes to move from the planning stage to program implementation. Dates below are subject to change. Details of each review period can be found in the RFA.
