AmeriCorps NCCC Grants

AmeriCorps NCCC is a federal national service program which strengthens communities and develops leaders through team-based service. AmeriCorps NCCC teams typically consist of approximately 8-12 young adults aged 18-26, including a team leader. Members join from all over the country and generally range from high school to college graduates in terms of education and experience.

Teams typically serve full time in a community for 6-8 weeks although shorter timeframes are possible. There is no charge for labor and NCCC provides teams their own transportation, however we request partners provide a place to sleep and shower along with assistance with food or kitchen facilities to cook on. Partners also provide project supplies and materials, technical support and direction, and a schedule of work.

AmeriCorps NCCC is a full-time, team-based residential service program for 18-26 year-olds. AmeriCorps members serving in the NCCC program represent a wide variety of socioeconomic, cultural, geographic, and educational backgrounds.

AmeriCorps members serving in the NCCC program are assigned to one of four regional campuses and then placed into teams ranging between 8-12 members. The teams complete a variety of service projects, which are generally 3 to 13 weeks in duration, and respond to local communities’ needs throughout the United States and territories. Each team has a specially trained Team Leader who serves and resides with the team. Each team is provided with one 15-passenger van and fuel is covered by AmeriCorps (for locations in the continental US). Each team is also allocated funds for food and laundry. All members are background-checked and fully insured by the Federal Tort Claims Act and Federal Employees Coverage Act.

TRANSPORTATION FUNDING OPPORTUNITIES FOR TRIBAL NATIONS

The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, otherwise known as the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL), represents a once-in-a-generation investment in our nation’s infrastructure, competitiveness, and communities and provides approximately $550 billion in new Federal infrastructure investment. 
 
This includes historic and critical investments in Tribal transportation through the Tribal Transportation Program (TTP), including increased funding to programs dedicated to Tribal needs and increased Tribal eligibility for new and existing discretionary grant programs. The first year of the BIL (2022) increases TTP funding by 15 percent over 2020 levels—and over the full range of the BIL (2022-2026), the law provides more than $3 billion for the program. This dedicated historic level of funding benefits all 574 federally recognized Indian Tribes and Alaska Native Villages (Tribes). 
 
The BIL provides substantial resources to help tribes advance projects that consider the unique circumstances affecting community members’ mobility needs and allocate resources consistently with those needs, enabling the transportation network to effectively serve all community members. The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) will work with Tribes to ensure consideration of using Federal funds for projects and inclusion of project elements that proactively address racial equity, workforce development, economic development and removing barriers to opportunity, including automobile dependence in both rural and urban communities as a barrier
