AmeriCorps grants support organizations that sponsor national service programs to tackle community needs in education, veterans and military families, economic opportunity, health, environmental stewardship, and disaster preparedness.  Grants cover some of the operating cost of the program, in addition to a small stipend for the AmeriCorps member, which is matched by the recipient organization.  Programs which operate in one state only are funded through and supported by their Governor appointed state service commission.  Multi-state programs and Indian Tribe programs are funded directly by the Corporation for National and Community Service.
The Governor's Office of Volunteer Services functions as the Alabama State Service Commission, making the office responsible for the administrative, fiscal and programmatic oversight, technical assistance, and program development as well as the provision of cross stream training opportunities to national service providers in Alabama. The office also facilitates the development and implementation of the State Service Plan.
