JEFFERSON CITY - Governor Jay Nixon announced Thursday that 21 Missouri organizations will receive $4,232,627 in AmeriCorps funding from the Corporation for National and Community Service, or CNCS.

The grants will support 695 AmeriCorps Members across the state to serve with 21 organizations. AmeriCorps Members will tackle critical challenges in Missouri including tutoring and mentoring youth, assisting veterans and military families, facilitating health education programs, preserving the state's natural resources, and helping communities respond to and recover from disasters.

Of the total funding amount, $2,231,960 will be granted to the Missouri Community Service Commission, appointed by the Governor, to award grants to nonprofit organizations and public agencies across Missouri. Additionally, $335,287 was awarded to multi-state programs headquartered in Missouri and $1,847,819 was awarded to Missouri organizations directly by CNCS. The law creating AmeriCorps gave a key role to states in determining how National Service resources are used and in promoting volunteerism and service

2014's AmeriCorps grant cycle was highly competitive due to the strong demand by organizations seeking AmeriCorps resources. The competition prioritized investments in economic opportunity, education, veterans and military families, disaster services, and continued a new initiative for governors and mayors.
