Service projects are developed in conjunction with sponsoring organizations and address critical needs in the areas of natural and other disasters, infrastructure improvement, environmental stewardship and conservation, energy conservation, and urban and rural development. ****FEMA Corps Members will focus solely in the areas of disaster response, preparedness, and ongoing recovery activities.**** NCCC's focus on responding to priorities in the area of natural and other disasters includes disaster preparedness, relief and recovery.

These types of projects can be performed within a member's assigned region or in some cases may be outside of that region. Applicants are encouraged to apply early, as selection is continuous and the class may fill before the application deadline.
