FY14 Planning Grant NOFO
The Volunteer Louisiana Commission is pleased to offer up to $38,000 in AmeriCorps Planning Grants for the FY14 AmeriCorps year. A planning grant is a restricted funds grant awarded to assist an applicant in completing the steps necessary to implement a sound concept that has already been developed.

PDF versions of the NOFO and the Application Instructions appear on the right side of this page.
Volunteer Louisiana encourages all eligible organizations to strongly consider this opportunity. This is a very short application window and there are two important deadlines to note:
- A Notice of Intent to Apply is due Monday, June 16, 2014 at 4 pm CST. Failure to submit a Notice of Intent to Apply will render an applicant ineligible to apply.
- Applications are due Wednesday, June 25, 2014 at 4pm CST. Successful applicants will be notified no later than June 30.
Applicants will apply to Volunteer Louisiana through the eGrants web-based application system. eGrants may be accessed at http://www.nationalservice.gov/egrants/index.asp, and applicants will choose the FY14 AmeriCorps State Formula NOFO option.
