South Coast Groups Part of Recently Funded AmeriCorps Program

Earlier this month, the Corporation for National and Community Service issued a national competitive AmeriCorps grant-award to Social Capital Inc. (SCI), along with hundreds of other organizations across the United States. The grant will enable to SCI to place 25 full-time AmeriCorps members with local nonprofits across the Eastern Massachusetts, including 5 positions in our area.

United Neighbors of Fall River (position sponsored by Partners for a Healthier Community), Boys & Girls Club of Fall River, UMass Dartmouth, the Community Economic Development Center, and The Marion Institute are local host sites for the SCI AmeriCorps program.

The national AmeriCorps grant awards are made through a highly competitive application process. Though SCI has been part of the AmeriCorps program for the past nine years, this is the first time SCI has been chosen for national funding; having previously received grants through state formula funding. SCI is one of five programs in Massachusetts picked to receive a competitive AmeriCorps grant for the first time through this recent grant process. AmeriCorps programs in the state are overseen by the Massachusetts Service Alliance.

“We are thrilled to have been selected as a national competitive AmeriCorps program,” commented SCI President David Crowley. “This grant award is a testament to the hard work of our staff team and the powerful service SCI AmeriCorps members have provided along with our community partners.”
