15. Evidence-Based Grantmaking

Multiple States

Multiple states allocate points for evidence in their AmeriCorps State grants. These state applications for AmeriCorps national service funds are modeled after the FY21 Notice of Funding Opportunity for AmeriCorps state and national grants operated by AmeriCorps, the federal agency for service and volunteering. These states allocate up to 20 points (out of 100) for the level and quality of evidence proposed by the applicant to assess “the likelihood that the proposed intervention will lead to [the desired] outcomes.”
