PRESIDENT REQUESTS MORE CUTS TO NATIONAL SERVICE FUNDING

In his February 5th budget request to Congress for Fiscal Year 2008,
President Bush proposed deepening last year's cuts to the Corporation
for National and Community Service. Included were reductions of $5
million for Learn and Service America, $9.2 million for
AmeriCorps*State and National, $5.7 million for AmeriCorps*VISTA, $25.1
million for AmeriCorps*NCCC, $16.1 million for the National Service
Trust, and $13 million for the Senior Corps. In all, the Corporation's
budget would be cut by more than $84 million, continuing the downward
trend since Fiscal Year 2004. To learn more, visit
