CIS of Washington will be receiving $343,249 in funding to continue our partnership with AmeriCorps and Serve Washington, which is used to place site coordinators in schools across the state.
It is part of a $16.3 million grant that was awarded to Washington State from the Corporation for National and Community Service. CIS is one of 19 organizations receiving funds, granting 25 site coordinator positions at CIS of Washington affiliates.
“AmeriCorps members make a powerful impact on the toughest challenges facing our state,” said Serve Washington Executive Director Debbie Schuffenhauer. “Building on Washington’s strong tradition of neighbor helping neighbor, AmeriCorps members will improve lives and strengthen communities across the state. As they serve others, AmeriCorps members will also expand opportunity for themselves by gaining skills and experience to jump-start their careers.”
