OneStar Foundation has released information regarding a AmeriCorps*Texas Grants 2009-2012 - Formula RFP. The application deadline is Monday, March 16, 2009.
OneStar Foundation is proud to administer AmeriCorps*Texas. Through AmeriCorps*Texas, OneStar administers grants with which nonprofits, public agencies and faith-based and community organizations can bring AmeriCorps members to their communities in order to:
AmeriCorps funding comes to Texas through two separate funding streams - formula and competitive funds. OneStar receives formula funds from the Corporation through a population-based allocation. Competitive funds are awarded through a national competition to programs that have competed successfully at both the state and federal levels.
At this time, Texas' 2009 formula allocation and the results of the 2009 national competition have not been determined. The funding availability for this Request for Proposals is dependent on the Formula allocation and national competition results. Once the Corporation makes final competitive funding decisions, OneStar will determine the remaining finalists to be funded through formula funds. Applications selected under this Request for Proposals will only be funded if formula dollars remain available after the finalists selected in the Fall 2009 RFP are awarded their grants.
To learn more about this funding opportunity please attend the webinar on Thursday, February 12, 2009 at 11:00 am CST. Registration and call information is listed below.
