AmeriCorps programs are funded by both the Corporation for National and Community Service and through participating local governments. CivicSpark or Water Corps support requires a fiscal contribution. Either public agencies or third parties can be the source for the fiscal contribution. This rate is all-inclusive (e.g. covers workers compensation, liability insurance, workplace costs, member personnel benefits, job travel support); and is only based on project work.
To proceed with services, LGC will require completion of a signed service agreement and a down payment of 10% of total project cost before the start of services. The remaining cost will be paid monthly throughout the term of service.
