Background Applicants for the AmeriCorps Affiliate program provide information through the use of the application instructions. Applicants use these application instructions to submit their application for Education Awards. This program provides only designations of positions as approved national service positions. CNCS may not award financial resources to applicants under this authority. The application information is collected electronically through the CNCS eGrants system. Current Action This is a new information collection request. This new information collection would allow for an open competition to be an AmeriCorps Affiliate sponsor. There are no current approved application instructions for the AmeriCorps Affiliate program. Type of Review: New.
