Apply today to host an Indiana Financial Capability Corps (IFCC) AmeriCorps member!
Prosperity Indiana is seeking service site organizations to participate in the new Indiana Financial Capability Corps (IFCC), an AmeriCorps program.
IFCC AmeriCorps members serve within community organizations that serve low- to moderate-income families and individuals and that are interested in integrating financial capability into their existing programs. IFCC will use Prosperity Now’s tool called Building Financial Capability: A Planning Guide for Integrated Services to help organizations assess clients' current financial capability, determine goals and appropriate services to meet clients' needs, evaluate current programs and community resources for building clients' financial capability, and develop and implement a plan to connect clients to services. The IFCC program is designed to enhance existing programs and services and benefit a wide range of organizations serving low- and moderate-income communities.
Prosperity Indiana is offering the placement of 20 AmeriCorps members with community organizations throughout Indiana. AmeriCorps members will be provided training, a living allowance, an education award at the successful completion of their service term, and loan forbearance for qualified student loans. Multiple service term options are available:
All service terms end August 10, 2018.
Interested organizations can learn more by reviewing the service site application and the service position description. Contact Rachel Mattingly firstname.lastname@example.org or 317-454-8542 if you have any questions about the program or application.

What is AmeriCorps?
Commonly known as the domestic Peace Corps, AmeriCorps is a national service program governed by the Corporation for National and Community Service (a federal agency) and administered by Serve Indiana (a state agency). AmeriCorps strengthens communities by involving people in service to meet local challenges.
AmeriCorps functions as a network of local, state, and national service programs that engages more than 80,000 Americans in intensive service to meet our country’s critical needs in education, public safety, health, the environment, and human needs. AmeriCorps members serve with nonprofits, public agencies, and faith-based and community organizations. Since 1994, men and women have provided needed assistance to millions of Americans and continue to address critical needs in communities across the nation through their AmeriCorps service.
Recognizing that the fabric of our society is strengthened by the diversity of its citizens, the policy of the Corporation for National and Community Service is to ensure a mutual respect for all differences among us. Participation in the Corporation and its programs and projects will be based on merit and equal opportunity for all, without regard to factors such as race, color, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, religion, age, disability, political affiliation, marital or parental status, military service, or religious, community, or social affiliations.
By adhering to this policy, the Corporation will be able to foster civic responsibility, strengthen the ties that bind us together as a people, and provide educational opportunity for those who make a substantial commitment to service.
Any volunteer, service participant, client, employee or beneficiary of a program or project who believes he or she has been subjected to discrimination in violation of nondiscrimination provisions of applicable laws, regulations or this policy may raise his or her concerns with the Corporation's Equal Opportunity Office. However, discrimination claims not brought to the attention of our Equal Opportunity Office within 45 days of their occurrence may not be accepted in a formal complaint of discrimination. Our Equal Opportunity Office may be reached at (202) 606-5000, extension 312 (voice), (202) 565-2799 (TDD), email@example.com
The Corporation's Equal Opportunity Office attempts to resolve concerns about discrimination promptly and when possible uses an informal conciliation process to do so. We encourage, but do not require, volunteers, service participants, and other beneficiaries to first bring concerns about discrimination to the director or appropriate personnel of the program or project.
