Also like NCCC, FEMA Corps is a full-time, team-based residential service program for men and women age 18–24 operated under the same campus structure as AmeriCorps NCCC. FEMA Corps Members are assigned to one of five NCCC campuses, located in Denver, Colorado; Sacramento, California; Baltimore, Maryland; Vicksburg, Mississippi; and Vinton, Iowa. AmeriCorps NCCC and FEMA Corps Members receive a living allowance of approximately $4,000 for the 10 months of service (about $200 every two weeks before taxes); housing; meals; limited medical benefits; up to $400 a month for childcare, if necessary; member uniforms; and a Segal AmeriCorps Education Award upon successful completion of the program.
