  • Propose ways to enhance the quality, utility and clarity of the information to be collected; and

Description: The AmeriCorps member application will gather data from applicants, including background information, educational history, skills and experience, and a motivational statement. AmeriCorps may use this information to evaluate their suitability for becoming a member and to place them in the most appropriate program(s) that match their skills and interests. The application has a few changes from the previously approved application, and if approved, the Corporation will continue to allow applicants to complete one application to be considered for multiple programs within AmeriCorps.
