Help Save AmeriCorps and Senior Corps

A recent article in The New York Times reported that AmeriCorps may be on a list of federal programs proposed for elimination in the Administration’s fiscal year 2018 budget, which will be sent to Congress in a few short weeks.

The Administration’s budget proposal serves as a set of recommendations to Congress as they make decisions about federal spending, but Congress ultimately makes the decision about what is funded and what is not. We must make sure Congress protects AmeriCorps and Senior Corps.

Contact your members of Congress today and urge them to protect funding for national service. Let them know how important these programs are to your community.
