Grants will go to organizations that use AmeriCorps members to engage in evidence-based interventions to increase educational achievement, high school graduation rates, and college and career readiness.

Expected total program funding is $15 million over three years, according to a program announcement. There are three types of grants: AmeriCorps State Grants, National Direct Grants, and Indian Tribe Grants.
