Our Impact

America’s greatness comes from the extraordinary acts of ordinary citizens. The Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) makes our country great by empowering citizens to solve local problems, expanding economic opportunity, encouraging personal responsibility, and strengthening civil society. Based on the principals of local control, competition, accountability, and public-private partnership, CNCS is a cost effective investment in America’s future.

Impact Areas

Choose from one of the below options to view examples of our impact:

Through Senior Corps, AmeriCorps, and other programs, CNCS engages three million Americans in results-driven service each year at 50,000 locations across the country, plus 43,000 individuals and families who receive independent living support in their homes.

CNCS works closely with Governor-appointed State Service Commissions, mayors and county officials to invest in local community solutions. CNCS strengthens communities by engaging 325,000 trained, skilled members in sustained service at schools, food banks, homeless shelters, veteran’s homes, and youth centers. The Social Innovation Fund (SIF) supports the growth of effective programs to have greater impact, as well as the development of innovative approaches to address the most challenging social problems.  Since the program’s inception in 2009, the SIF has generated $1 billion in investments for evidence-based community solutions in 46 states and Washington, D.C.  Private and local funders have nearly tripled the federal investment, providing $672 million to expand programs that work.
