Tribes Allocated Education Funding

 WASHINGTON  — The Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) today announced a funding opportunity to accelerate the success of service-learning programs in federally-recognized Indian Tribes and U.S. Territories. Anticipating approximately $650,000 in new funding, CNCS expects to award three to four new grants under its Learn and Serve America program to enhance and expand existing service-learning programs, and develop new service-learning opportunities in tribal communities.

The grants will provide funding for one to three years to schools that are challenged to meet education standards. Specifically, the grants will support culturally-relevant programs that help youth in under-resourced communities achieve in school and graduate prepared for college, the work force, and life. These grants underscore the agency’s commitment to expanding opportunities among Indian Tribes and U.S. Territories to use service as a tool to build stronger communities.

Funding for this grant competition is contingent on the enactment of the Fiscal Year 2011 budget for CNCS. Click here for more information about this funding opportunity and instructions on how to apply. Applications are due by 5 p.m. Eastern Time, March 3, 2011.

Guided by the Edward M. Kennedy Serve America Act, CNCS programming promotes service as a solution to educational challenges, striving to help children and youth perform at grade-level and graduate from high school ready to succeed.
