Buffalo AmeriCorps On The Rebound: Community Service Without Abandonment!
Buffalo, New York – September 14, 2010 –Buffalo AmeriCorps and staff at The Belle Center can now rest a little easier after the decision to not fund Buffalo AmeriCorps for the upcoming 2010-11 fiscal year was overturned. After much advocacy, Buffalo AmeriCorps recently received a grant totaling $283,277 from the NYS Commission on National and Community Service.

The Buffalo AmeriCorps program has a major impact on the Western New York community as it provides vital resources towards socio-economic advancement for members in the community through service. Buffalo AmeriCorps has provided $206,000 in education awards over the past 3 years to members who have successfully completed their term of service.
