Call Congress: Reject National Service Elimination


The Trump Administration released its budget proposal that eliminates the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) — the federal agency that supports national service programs like AmeriCorps. Funding for the Peace Corps and YouthBuild, two other major national service programs, is also in jeopardy.

The elimination of national service means nearly 75,000 fewer young people serving in local communities; 590,000 students without mentors and teachers who improve academic performance; 55,000 veterans and military families who are not receiving critical services; 40,000 economically disadvantaged individuals without housing assistance; and 800,000 people who will not be prepared for natural disasters.
