Executive Summary

The Washington Conservation Corps (WCC) is an AmeriCorps program that addresses the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) priority areas of disaster services, environmental stewardship, and veterans and military families. This funding will provide full-time service opportunities for 275 AmeriCorps members. These members, along with 3,000 volunteers, will complete environmental and disaster services in 16 counties in Washington and nationally through federal disaster declarations. CNCS funding helps the WCC provide opportunities to young adults and veterans, prepare and deploy up to 275 members on disaster response, and improve 1,200 acres of critical ecosystems. Our request of $3 Million dollars in funding will be matched by $6 Million dollars in support from our host sites and parent agency, Washington Department of Ecology (Ecology).
