2017 Disasters

In response to Hurricane Maria, CNCS is sent disaster relief teams to support the recovery effort in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Locally-serving AmeriCorps programs continue to coordinate with the service commission to provide services to citizens impacted by the service. We will continue to update this page with additional information as soon as it becomes available.

The Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS), the federal agency for volunteering and service, has deployed AmeriCorps and Senior Corps members to areas impacted by the recent hurricanes. Following a disaster, national service acts as a force multiplier, providing key resources and significantly expanding the capacity of existing organizations on the ground. Through all its programs and initiatives, CNCS helps communities to prepare for, mitigate, respond to, and recover from disasters.  See the most up to date press releases on our disaster relief here

More than 2,000 national service members are supporting disaster relief efforts in Texas, Florida, Georgia, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. AmeriCorps members from all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and U.S. territories have been called to communities impacted.  Find out more here
