Fiscal Year 2015 Budget Request

Service is fundamental to who we are and how we meet our challenges in America. As citizens, we recognize that we have responsibilities as well as rights; that our destinies are bound together. As President Obama said in his 2014 State of the Union address, “Citizenship demands a sense of common cause; participation in the hard work of self-government; an obligation to serve to our communities.”

The President’s Budget request of $1.05 billion for the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) is a strong investment in national service programs which lead the nation’s efforts to tap the energy of citizens to solve problems in their communities.

Since its creation 20 years ago, CNCS has worked hand in hand with thousands of local partners to improve lives, expand economic opportunity, bolster civic and faith-based organizations, and involve millions of Americans in service to address our nation’s most pressing challenges. CNCS engages more than five million Americans in service each year at more than 60,000 locations across the country, from large cities to rural communities.
