Congressman Seth Moulton and Senators Coons, Gillibrand Call on President Obama to Invest in National Service

January 29th, 2016

90 Legislators Support Robust National Service Program Funding in President’s Final Budget
Salem, MA – Today, Congressman Seth Moulton (D-MA) and a bipartisan group of legislators from both the House and Senate called on President Obama to request increased federal funding for the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS). Moulton’s letter to the President was signed by 23 Senators and 67 Representatives. The 90 legislators are united in their appeal for robust funding for national service programs in the President’s final budget request to Congress.
 
CNCS oversees a wide range of national service programs, including AmeriCorps, Senior Corps, AmeriCorps VISTA and the Social Innovation Fund. The legislators laud the localized, community-driven approach of these programs, which exist in every Congressional district in the country. 
 
“For me, military service was a life-changing experience, and I believe every American should have the opportunity to give back to our country through public service,” said Moulton. “The Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) provides the opportunity for millions of Americans of all ages to serve their communities. These programs add tremendous value to every state across our country, including programs right here in the Sixth District. Giving more Americans the opportunity to serve by investing in national service will make us a stronger nation.”
 
“We join Senators Kirsten Gillibrand and Chris Coons, Representative Seth Moulton and the National Service Congressional Caucus in urging the Administration to increase funding for CNCS so that Americans of all ages have the opportunity to serve and volunteer in their community,” said AnnMaura Connolly, President, Voices for National Service.
 
Moulton’s letter reflects his continued focus on ensuring every willing American has the opportunity to serve his or her community. Late last year, he fought successfully to increase AmeriCorps funding by 15%.
