Office of the CEO

   

CEO Message on Senate Subcommittee Action on FY 2007 National Service Budget

 

Dear National Service Colleagues:

Earlier this evening, the Senate House Labor-HHS-Education Appropriations subcommittee reported out legislation recommending $876.5 million for the Corporation for National and Community Service and its programs for fiscal year 2007. This number is $53.6 million more than passed by the full House Appropriations Committee last month and $25 million above the President’s request.

The numbers break down as follows. (To compare with the House-passed version of the bill, see my message of June 7):

Domestic Volunteer Service Act

VISTA: $95.4 million
RSVP: $59.6 million
Foster Grandparent Program: $110.9 million
Senior Companion Program: $46.9 million

Total for DVSA: $313 million

National and Community Service Act

AmeriCorps*State and National Grants: $258.9 million
NCCC: $26.7 million
National Service Trust: $124.7 million
Learn and Serve America: $34.1 million
Innovation and Demonstration: $12.3 million
Evaluation: $3.9 million
Partnership Grants: $14.8 million
State Commission Administrative Grants: $12.5 million

Total for NCSA: $488.2 million

Other

Salaries and Expenses: $70.3 million
Office of Inspector General: $4.9 million

Total for CNCS: $876.5 million

The Senate subcommittee’s recommendation is expected to be voted on by the full Senate Appropriations Committee on July 20. No date has been set for full House consideration of their bill. After the full House and Senate vote on their versions, any differences between the House and Senate-passed versions of the spending bills must then be reconciled by a conference committee. The House and Senate must both pass the conference version of the bill before it is sent to the President for signature.

Links to various documents on the 2007 budget process for the Corporation and its programs can be found here. As more information becomes available, we will continue to share it with you.

Sincerely,

David Eisner
Chief Executive Officer
Corporation for National and Community Service
