August 10, 2018
On Thursday, August 9, 2018, the Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services announced that Kentucky has received nearly $6.7 million in AmeriCorps federal funding for 20 programs with more than 900 total members. Most of the programs were funded through an annual grant competition by the Corporation for National and Community Service, a federal agency that engages Americans of all ages in service. The remaining programs are funded through formula grant funds that are allocated to Kentucky by CNCS based on state population. CHFS Secretary Adam Meier said the funding will help address critical issues across the Commonwealth, with AmeriCorps programs resulting in a $21 million investment in Kentucky.
