On February 17th, President Obama signed the Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.
This Act will allow the National Service … two hundred million dollars to be distributed throughout the AmeriCorps program, thus creating about 16,000 new AmeriCorps positions as well as helping to finance existing grants.
The Act as a whole is a reaction to the growing number of people seeking jobs in Non-Profits, as well as to the population of those in need increasing due to the current state of our economy.
On behalf of the AmeriCorps here at the American Red Cross of Greater Chicago, we say thank you President Obama!
