AmeriCorps and Senior Corps: Quantifying the Impact
Posted by Voices for National Service on July 28, 2020
Hot off the presses! Voices for National Service just released new economic research that confirms that AmeriCorps and Senior Corps programs offer a significant return on investment.
A July 2020 study by economists at ICF found that every $1 that Congress appropriates for AmeriCorps and Senior Corps returns over $17 to society, program members, and the government.
This study proves what we always knew: investing in national service makes good economic sense. ICF found that national service programs that leverage the skills and talents of citizens to address unmet community needs offer substantial monetary benefits to several stakeholder groups and a significant return on the federal investment.
