NCCC members serve on projects that address critical needs related to natural and other disasters, infrastructure improvements, environmental stewardship and conservation, energy conservation, and urban and rural development.

FEMA Corps is for young adults who want to gain professional skills in emergency management while serving with the FEMA staff on disaster preparedness, response, and recovery efforts.

During their service, members are provided housing, food, uniforms, and the equipment that they will need to be successful in the field.  They will receive a modest bi-weekly stipend for personal expenses and if they successfully complete the program, they are awarded a $5,775 Education Award.  This award can be used for future tuition costs or to pay back student loans.

Graduates of AmeriCorps NCCC and FEMA Corps gain marketable skills and receive preferential hiring status for over 200 Employers of National Service which includes organizations such as Disney, Comcast, American Red Cross, United Way, Arizona State University, and the National Park Service.

There are three cycles; summer, fall, and winter. Those interested need to apply online by the deadline of the cycle they are interested in serving in. (Summer Start - April 1; Fall Start - July 1; Winter Start - Nov. 1)
