Every day, Habitat for Humanity
affiliates across the country rely on the important work of national service
members through programs like AmeriCorps and AmeriCorps VISTA. For the past 20 years, these members have
helped manage, organize and lead thousands of Habitat volunteers, or support the
daily operations of affiliates. Some in Congress have threatened to cut funding
for the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) — the federal
agency that oversees national service programs. This cut would greatly reduce
the capacity of Habitat affiliates to serve partner families. Make your voice
heard today by telling your members of Congress to adequately fund CNCS in the
fiscal year 16 budget to help Habitat fulfill its mission.
Dear [Decision Maker],
I support AmeriCorps and I oppose cuts to national service.
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP]
