Public Health AmeriCorps will support the recruitment, training, and development of a new generation of public health leaders ready to respond to the nation’s public health needs.

The Northeast AmeriCorps Regional office hopes to connect with our current and past partners and listen to what our communities need. With the recent release of the Public Health AmeriCorps Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO), we appreciate your support in reviewing, considering and sharing the NOFO widely within your networks and community.
