AmeriCorps National Direct Consultation Form:

The Edward M. Kennedy Serve America Act requires that any applicant proposing a multi-state AmeriCorps program (National Direct) consult with the State Service Commissions in the states where they intend to operate an AmeriCorps program.  Please fill out the National Direct Consultation Form and email it to Daniel Sparkman, AmeriCorps Program Manger, at Daniel.Sparkman@tn.gov


AmeriCorps National Civilian Community Corps (NCCC) Concept Form:

Each year, AmeriCorps NCCC engages teams of members in projects in communities across the United States. Service projects, which typically last from six to eight weeks, address critical needs related to natural and other disasters, infrastructure improvement, environmental stewardship and conservation, energy conservation, and urban and rural development. Members mentor students, construct and rehabilitate low-income housing, respond to natural disasters, clean up streams, help communities develop emergency plans, and address countless other local needs.

Sponsoring organizations request the assistance of AmeriCorps NCCC teams by submitting a concept form to the regional campus that covers that organization’s state. The campuses provide assistance in completing the application, developing a work plan, and preparing the project sponsor for the arrival of the AmeriCorps NCCC team.
