Dear National Service Colleagues:
I wanted to update you on recent activity by House and Senate Appropriators on FY 2009 funding for Corporation programs.
The House Appropriations Subcommittee on Labor, Health and Education held its markup on June 19. This morning, the full Appropriations Committee began its consideration of the bill, but did not complete final action. The Committee will take up the bill after the July 4th recess.
The Senate Subcommittee marked up its version of the 2009 appropriations bill on Tuesday, and the full Appropriations Committee reported the bill out this afternoon.
Neither the House subcommittee nor the Senate committee has made any numbers available; when we get the numbers we will share them with you as quickly as possible.

Corporation for National and Community Service
