ORGANIZATIONS SUPPORTIVE OF THE BILL:

  • “CNCS staff in these 46 state and territorial offices are immersed within the communities they serve, making them especially aware of their community’s unique needs – and how CNCS service programs can help fill those gaps most effectively,” Rep. McCollum said. “Closing these offices without consulting stakeholders and moving toward a hastily developed regional plan undermines the CNCS mission and is unacceptable.” (Source: Betty McCollum, Press Release, 2/28/19)
