Office of the CEO

   

CEO Message on Amendments to the Labor-HHS-Education Spending Bill for National Service Budget for FY 2006

 

Message from David Eisner, CEO
Corporation for National and Community Service

Dear National Service Colleagues:

After final passage of the Labor-HHS-Education spending bill on Friday, we learned that an “en bloc” set of amendments was adopted that included a $5 million cut in national service funding. The amendment cut $2.5 million from AmeriCorps Grants, resulting in a total of $267,500,000; and $2.5 million from Learn and Serve America, resulting in a total of $37,500,000. Total funding for the Corporation and its programs in the House-passed bill is $909 million, $12 million below the President’s request.

This Congressional action was an unexpected development. As the appropriations process now goes to the Senate, the Administration will continue to work hard for full funding of the President’s request. We will continue to provide updates as developments occur.

Sincerely,

David Eisner
Chief Executive Officer
Corporation for National and Community Service
