AmeriCorps NCCC learning about Wildfire Recovery with CUSP

Over the years the Coalition for the Upper South Platte has depended upon the support of the AmericCorps program to lend a helping hand as we have faced post fire impacts and prepared for the next fire. ┬áThe program is an amazing one that engages the next generation of natural resources professionals and provides real support to small and large non-profits and communities in need. ┬áLast week the New York Times ran an article that the Corporation for National and Community Service and AmeriCorps may be among federal programs being considered for elimination in the Administration’s budget. If you feel this is an important program let you elected officials know.
