  • FY20 National Direct Consultation

    As part of the Serve America Act, National Direct Consultation was established to help increase collaboration and coordination among national service programs, which in turn supports the efficient use of national service funds in each state.

    Multi-state (also known as National Direct) applicants applying for competitive AmeriCorps funding are required to consult with the state service commission in the states they are applying to place members. 

    It is strongly encouraged that multi-state applicants (national directs) contact the state service commission(s) as early as possible in order to begin a dialogue related to your proposed placement of AmeriCorps members. This may help inform your application to CNCS based on suggestions the state service commission(s) may offer based on need in the state, existing AmeriCorps program placement, and other factors to consider.

    The link to the form and more information can be found by clicking on the following link: https://amsc.memberclicks.net/national-direct-consultation
