Grants & Funding
ServeOhio provides grants to organizations that demonstrate they will engage AmeriCorps members to provide a service intervention that addresses a critical need in Ohio. We offer two funding competitions each year - a formula funding competition in the spring and a competitive funding competition in the fall.
AmeriCorps National Direct applicants - please complete the National Direct Consultation form to notify ServeOhio of your intent to place National AmeriCorps members in Ohio. Consultation is a requirement outlined in the AmeriCorps NOFO for new, re-compete, and continuation applicants.
