#Shareworthy: Each year, nearly 2️⃣0️⃣0️⃣K #OlderAmericans help address key challenges happening in their own neighborhoods as #AmeriCorpsSeniors volunteers. Their service is vital for community-based organizations to operate and support more stakeholders, which due to #COVID19 is critical now, more than ever. To help further support them in this critical role, we'll be making $4️⃣M available for our current AmeriCorps Seniors grantees to address ongoing needs created by the #Pandemic, including:

✅contact tracing 📍
✅vaccination programs 💉
✅vaccination education and navigation services 🔎
✅support for children and youth learning loss 📚

These funds are part of the $1️⃣B invested in #AmeriCorps through the 2021 American Rescue Plan Act. They're our first step in ensuring community partners can reach all those in need— and that we can empower more Americans to make a difference through #NationalService. Together, we can unite in service and help communities across America #BuildBackBetter🏗️
