Voices for National Service, the coalition of National Service programs and state commissions committed to expanding opportunities for Americans to serve, has alerted its membership that a floor debate on the GIVE Act is likely, beginning as early as this week.  Technically known as HR 2857, the GIVE Act would reauthorize the Corporation for National & Community Service and its core programs: AmeriCorps, Learn & Serve America, and Senior Corps.

The leadership of the U.S. House of Representatives has reserved floor time for consideration of HR 2857, the Generations Invigorating Volunteering and Education (GIVE) Act. Floor debate on the bill could possibly begin this week. Voices for National Service will continue to monitor the bill and report on any developments.

 Thanks to Voices for National Service for passing on the update!
