Executive Summary

YouthBuild USA proposes to have 3,138 AmeriCorps members who will build or repair housing units, provide healthcare services, refurbish computers, or provide conservation services in 86 low-income communities in 33 states each year. At the end of the first program year, the AmeriCorps members will be responsible for making at least 480 units of affordable housing available for low-income individuals and families. In addition, the AmeriCorps members will leverage an additional 5,500 volunteers, who will be engaged in serving low-income individuals alongside the members or providing services to the opportunity youth who serve as members themselves.

This program will focus on the CNCS focus area of Economic Opportunity. The CNCS investment of $8,502,053 will be matched with $8,502,053, $6,402,722 in public funding and $2,099,331 in private funding.
