Our collective ‘two cents’

February 19, 2009

So what’s going to happen to all that money going to ‘AmeriCorps’ from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (AKA- ‘the stimulus bill’)?  Keep tabs on it here. The Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) now has a page dedicated to letting us all know how those dollars will be doled out.  AND, for those interested, there’s an open conference call to discuss how the funds will be spent.

Call 3:  For Everyone – Open Call

Date: Friday, February 20
Time: 3:00 pm Eastern Time
Number: 888-946-4303
Passcode: 4957574

In other news… CNCS recently elected Alan Solomont as its new chairman.  Solomont has been active for many years in the Democratic Party and served as President Obama’s local finance chairman.  He himself volunteers for many community and charitable organizations.  Check him out:  WBUR, Boston’s NPR station, talks to Solomont about his new role.
