Tell Congress: Stand for National Service!

Every day, Habitat for Humanity affiliates across the country rely on the important work of national service members. These service members are able to support Habitat’s work thanks to programs like AmeriCorps and AmeriCorps VISTA. For the past 23 years, service members have helped manage, organize and lead thousands of Habitat volunteers, and support Habitat affiliates’ daily operations year-round.

In short, national service helps Habitat for Humanity fulfill its mission. Use the form below to tell Congress to support robust funding for the Corporation for National and Community Service — the federal agency that oversees national service programs — in the fiscal year 2020 budget.

Feel free to personalize the message or send it as-is. Either way, your voice matters.

Dear [Decision Maker],

As your constituent, a supporter of Habitat for Humanity and on behalf of the communities nationwide that will benefit from the work of national service participants, I am writing to ask that you protect funding for the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) and all national service programs, especially AmeriCorps.

Please support CNCS at $1.2 billion in the FY 20 Labor-HHS appropriations bill. This includes AmeriCorps State and National at $386 million and AmeriCorps VISTA at $97 million.
