Grants to USA and territories nonprofit organizations, government agencies, IHEs, and Tribes for programs to improve employment rates in adults over the age of 55. Applicants are advised to complete required registrations well in advance of the deadline. Funding is intended to provide older adults with support and training in order to re-enter the workforce.
AmeriCorps Seniors is publishing this funding notice with the purpose of creating the AmeriCorps Seniors Workforce Development Senior Demonstration Program to support projects focused on supporting older adults as they seek to secure employment in professional, skilled labor, or para-professional careers. In addition, AmeriCorps Seniors is partnering with Public Health AmeriCorps, which seeks to support projects that address the public health needs of local communities, advance health equity and create pathways to public health careers for older adults.
AmeriCorps’ priorities for this funding opportunity are:
AmeriCorps Seniors is particularly interested in how applicants will demonstrate for the targeted profession(s), how older adults (adults aged 55+) will be recruited, the type of certification or credential provided, specific period of mentoring and post-job placement follow-up, and how the program reaches success. In addition, please detail service placement description, including how placement connects with training and certification and information about stipends and other supports to remove barriers to service and participation. Finally, ensure the application describes a strategy for incremental check-in at the time of eventual job placement, and a period of time after job placement (minimum one month, six months post, and one year post employment).
Estimated Total Program Funding:
Applicants must propose a period of performance to start July 1, 2023, through June 30, 2026. Successful applicants will be issued awards by late June 2023.
AmeriCorps anticipates making three-year grant awards and award all three years at one time. Applicants should include second- and third-year budget amounts in their budget application.
