TAKE ACTION

AmeriCorps has faced challenges before, and is facing its biggest challenge yet. Last week, the House Appropriations Committee marked up a bill that eliminates funding for AmeriCorps State and National, NCCC, State Service Commissions, and AmeriCorps Education Awards, threatening up to 71,000 AmeriCorps service positions. You can learn more in this statement on the House bill.

The Sierra Nevada AmeriCorps Program (SNAP) is the backbone of the workforce for Sierra Nevada Alliance. Help protect AmeriCorps and preserve one of our most vital programs.

The good news is, we’ve fought off crippling budget bills before and turned proposed cuts into funding increases. But we need to activate again, and we need everyone’s help. Your voice matters more than ever. Take 2 minutes and tell your lawmakers that AmeriCorps is essential to your community. 

The House bill would be catastrophic for AmeriCorps and the nonprofit sector. In fact, anything less than increased funding for AmeriCorps in fiscal year (FY) 2025 will also lead to substantial reductions in AmeriCorps and AmeriCorps Seniors positions and the services these members provide to local communities. To protect AmeriCorps infrastructure and recent gains made to AmeriCorps living allowances, we need increased funding in FY25.

There is so much at stake. Join us today and tell Congress to reject devastating cuts and invest in AmeriCorps.
