Fiscal Year 2016: Most AmeriCorps grants are operational grants made on a standard cost reimbursement basis.
Some of the CNCS grants or state subgrants are awarded for a fixed amount per full-time AmeriCorps member (with the amount of funds being contingent on how many members are enrolled and complete their terms of service).
In addition, some AmeriCorps grantees or subgrantees receive Education Award Program (EAP) grants of a small fixed-amount for each member enrolled or no operational funding (CNCN provides only the Segal AmeriCorps Education Awards to AmeriCorps members who successfully complete their terms of service).
Under each form of grant, organizations receive only a portion or none of the total funding needed to operate the program (which may include the member?s living allowance and other program costs).
The organization must use other resources to cover the costs for operating the AmeriCorps program.
