Click here for the National Direct Consultation Form.
The Massachusetts Service Alliance (MSA) is excited to have the opportunity to consult with AmeriCorps National Direct programs to better serve the needs of our state.
Under the Edward M. Kennedy Serve America Act, national, multi-state AmeriCorps programs and applicants are required to consult with the State Service Commissions in the state in which they propose to conduct AmeriCorps projects (section 1308, amending section 130).
Please complete the form as the first step in the consultation process if your organization is:
- applying for a new National Direct program that will serve Massachusetts;
- currently operating a National Direct site in Massachusetts and re-competing as new;
- submitting a continuation application but is proposing to open a site in Massachusetts for the first time.
The level of further consultation will depend upon the size and scope of the proposed program. Please note that MSA is not requiring National Direct programs that are submitting continuation requests to complete the consultation process unless it includes a new site in Massachusetts.
Please complete the form and email it to Suzana Kantardzic at email@example.com no later than January 17.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Suzana (ext. 216) at 617-542-2544.
