Executive Summary

The Service and Conservation Corps proposes to have 44 FT and 32 HT/serving for 6 months in a full-time capacity (60 MSYs), using 6 total crews, with typically 10 members each who will provide disaster relief, Gulf Coast restoration, and conservation of public lands in 4 states (AR, LA, OK, TX). At the end of the first program year, the AC members will be responsible for 675 acres of improved public land and 27 miles of improved trails/waterways. In addition, the AC members will leverage an additional 500 volunteers who will be engaged in assisting in disaster areas and environmental stewardship projects through National Trails Day and MLK Day.

This program will focus on the CNCS focus areas of Environmental Stewardship. The CNCS investment of $805,800 will be matched with $1,013,172, $903,172 in public funding and $110,000 in private funding.
