Serve Kentucky Request for Proposals for 2019 AmeriCorps State Grants
State service commissions, like Serve Kentucky, have their own requests for proposals (RFP) and training/technical assistance schedule. Kentucky-specific resources and required documents are posted below. Please keep in mind, the dates referenced in the NOFO materials are for national direct applicants (operating in multiple states) and state commissions. At no time during the state competitive competition should single state applicants contact CNCS.
