Support AmeriCorps with Mount Grace

Posted Wednesday, February 22, 2017

President Trump’s DRAFT budget for FY2018 completely eliminates the federal funding that supports AmeriCorps.  If this budget becomes law, Mount Grace’s groundbreaking MassLIFT AmeriCorps program will cease to exist next year. 

AmeriCorps mobilizes tens of thousands of people annually who work together to provide critical services to communities in need across the United States.  Our MassLIFT AmeriCorps program brings volunteers together to support land conservation throughout Massachusetts—educating communities about land stewardship and making more conservation possible in more than 200 towns in our Commonwealth. 

To stop AmeriCorps from being eliminated, we must act now!

Please join us this spring for special Congressional Call Days to ask Congress to protect and fully fund the Corporation for National & Community Service and its AmeriCorps programs. Remember, you can still use these links to contact Congree even if it's not a national call day.
