Please note: If a site is unable to recruit a member or if a member exits early and is unable to refill the spot, that site forfeits its host site fee. Kindly note that if an enrolled member is unable to complete their term of service and serves less than 30% of their required total hours, the position may be refilled according to AmeriCorps grant policy.
Costs associated with programming*
Each site is expected to contribute host site fees or cost share to help cover the costs of the RISE AmeriCorps program. This is non-federal and non-refundable fee. To read more on benefits, visit the Member Resources page.
Full time - $3000 per member, Half - $1500 per member,
