CEO Message on President's FY 2012 Budget Request for CNCS

by Patrick A. Corvington

Today President Obama is sending his Fiscal Year 2012 budget request to Congress, including proposed funding for the Corporation for National and Community Service and its programs. You can read the complete budget request now on our budget page.

The President’s FY 2012 budget requests $1.26 billion for CNCS, a $109 million increase over current funding levels. This request will strengthen our nation’s volunteer sector, foster innovation and civic engagement, and mobilize five million Americans to solve critical problems through national service.

This is a strong budget request that recognizes that national service is a critical, cost-effective investment in our nation’s future that solves problems, strengthens communities, and transforms those who serve.


Patrick A. Corvington is the CEO of the Corporation for National and Community Service.
