Across the country, AmeriCorps and Senior Corps members are stepping up to help communities respond and recover from COVID-19. They are serving at drive-thru testing sites, providing childcare for health care workers, delivering food and medicine to our most vulnerable, helping seniors combat social isolation, and supporting students struggling with distance learning.
The Cultivating Opportunity and Response to the Pandemic through Service (CORPS) Act would expand AmeriCorps and Senior Corps to increase national service’s ability to aid in COVID-19 recovery efforts. It would grow AmeriCorps to 250,000 positions over a three-year period; boost the AmeriCorps living stipend so that individuals regardless of financial situation can participate; increase the education award to twice the value of the maximum Pell grant; ramp up Senior Corps tele-working technology, and more.
Send an urgent message to your members of Congress in support of the CORPS Act, and ask that they include it in the next COVID-19 relief package.
