FEMACorps: An Illustrative Example of Expanding National Service Through Partnerships to Advance Government Priorities

The Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) have launched an innovative partnership to establish a FEMA-devoted unit of 1,600 service corps members within AmeriCorps National Civilian Community Corps (NCCC), dedicated to disaster preparedness, response, and recovery. This historic collaboration between the agencies enhances the federal government’s disaster capabilities. This project is a collaboration between Seattle University, the University of CO Denver, and the Corporation for National and Community Service to demonstrate the formation of this partnership, implementation results after one year, and preliminary analysis of factors related to sponsors’ satisfaction with the program.  Preliminary results were presented at the 2014 Association for Research on Nonprofit Organizations and Voluntary Associations Annual Conference in Denver, CO.​ | Physical Address: 1380 Lawrence St., Ste. 500  Denver, CO  80204 | Mailing Address: University of Colorado Denver, SPA, Campus Box 142, P.O.
