AmeriCorps funding offers a powerful, corps-based national service approach to community problem-solving.
Right now in Connecticut AmeriCorps members are creating real impact through national service in the lives of our state’s citizens – improving early childhood literacy, reducing chronic absenteeism, improving academic achievement, improving school-based nutrition, improving health and health insurance outcomes, advancing the response to the opioid crisis, shoring up our state’s safety net through nonprofit capacity building, and more.
