AmeriCorps Funding in Limbo | Coastal Review Online

She does all this as an AmeriCorps national service member, where she serves with the North Carolina Coastal Federation’s Wanchese office as a community engagement specialist.

The Americorps program is run through the Corporation for National and Community Service, or CNCS, a federal agency that engages Americans in community service – and it’s an agency targeted for elimination in President Trump’s proposed budget.

The Trump administration proposed cutting funding to the independent agency in its 2018 budget blueprint. Under the current budget, the agency was allocated $1.1 billion. AmeriCorps, which is also known as the domestic Peace Corps, is one of several programs the agency is involved with, including Teach for America and Senior Corps, which creates service opportunities for senior citizens in their communities.

Congress approved on Friday a continuing resolution that would give lawmakers another week to negotiate a final budget while avoiding a government shutdown.

Preserve money in federal budget for AmeriCorps | The Herald Sun

Federal funding for the Corporation for National & Community Service (CNCS), the agency that supports AmeriCorps, is currently slated for complete elimination from the federal government’s budget, but only accounts for a fraction of federal spending. That investment provides a vast return in needed services in under-resourced communities, civic engagement, career exploration for young people that prepares them to enter the workforce, and resources that enable those young people to pursue further education. Eliminating funding for AmeriCorps would cripple many major nonprofit and charitable organizations across the country, leaving a void that will not soon be filled.

AmeriCorps volunteers and the organizations who utilize their talents inspire a new kind of service to their country. We may not all be able to serve in the military, but if we expand the definition of service to country to include programs like AmeriCorps, we could provide every citizen with an opportunity to serve. Expanding these opportunities would create a new generation of civically engaged citizens, and the changes they make would be felt for generations to come.

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.
