PennSERVE: The Governor’s Office of Citizen Service funds and supports national service efforts that engage Pennsylvania citizens in strengthening our communities.
Each year, PennSERVE awards approximately $10 million in federal funding from the Corporation for National and Community Service to AmeriCorps programs in Pennsylvania. AmeriCorps is a national program that provides human and financial resources to help tackle some of our country’s toughest problems.
In 2017, PennSERVE is administering 19 AmeriCorps programs and one planning grant that address the Commonwealth’s needs in the areas of education, economic opportunity, healthy futures, veterans and military families, environmental stewardship, and capacity building. Over 1,300 AmeriCorps members will provide direct service to their communities, engage an additional 15,000 community volunteers, and earn $5.4 million for higher education.
