Mitt Romney: No to government funding for Americorps, City Year

The Republican case for funding AmeriCorps

Instead, this under-appreciated, bootstrapped program — a unique public-private partnership that marries federal dollars with demonstrated not-for-profit community and faith-based efforts — is doing innovative work to lift Americans from flood, fire and addiction alike. 

 

There’s a lot of talk these days among Republicans of what and how much must be shaved from the budget if tax reform is to be achieved. They’re right — a tremendous amount has to go. But here’s a Republican telling you now that at least one program, which accounts for just .01 percent of the federal budget, unconditionally deserves your and my tax dollars. 

And here’s three timely reasons why.

First, disaster response and recovery

As a function of the federal government’s response to Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria, the Corporation for National and Community Service, a federal agency that administers the nation’s national service programs, including AmeriCorps, has deployed north of 2,000 national service members to impacted communities.

My Turn: Want well informed neighbors? Install a message board (no, really)

In today’s world, we tend to rely on the internet for all our communication needs. While great tools exist on the web, they are not readily available to every member of the public, and may not be reliable in the event of an emergency. One Phoenix neighborhood has an old-school solution to fill the gaps left by technology.

The Grandview neighborhood is made up of single-family homes, multifamily apartment buildings, a middle school and small businesses. When the Grandview Neighborhood Association began a project or hosted an event, their outreach usually included the neighborhood Facebook page and NextDoor . However, some residents were missing from the conversation.

Elderly and low-income residents who do not use social media and renters who are new to the neighborhood were the primary groups that the association hoped to reach when they turned to the idea of using message boards. Yes, those cork boards – in this case housed in a metal box and protected by plexiglass – upon which fliers are pinned.

Applying for Americorp. Any tips?

I'm applying for Americorp right now. I have moderate but consistent community service experience. I volunteered at camps, art museums, and community gardens throughout high school.


If you are as enthusiastic as you sound, I don't know how you would not be accepted.

I know many many people who have volunteered through Americorps just being a high school student, high school graduate or in college.
