Volunteer Tennessee strongly encourages all planning grant applicants to attend at least one information session.
AmeriCorps Tennessee Planning Grants provide financial support to organizations that will be developing an AmeriCorps program to place AmeriCorps members in service solely within Tennessee. Grant recipients are awarded up to $75,000 for a 12-month planning period to start no earlier than August 1, 2024 and are expected to be better prepared to compete for an AmeriCorps program grant in the 2025-2026 grant cycle. A planning grant will not be used to support AmeriCorps members. Agencies interested in applying for a planning grant are invited to visit the Volunteer Tennessee website to download application materials.
Volunteer Tennessee, the governor appointed 25-member, bi-partisan commission that encourages volunteerism and community service, invites those interested in running a Tennessee AmeriCorps program to apply, including public and private nonprofit, governmental, and faith-based agencies from across the state.
