As part of a Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) grant of $4.98 million dollars, a Habitat AmeriCorps member will be serving with Upper Cumberland Habitat for Humanity for the 2019-2020 service year.
AmeriCorps members apply for and serve full-time at local Habitat affiliates across the country, helping thousands of families build strong and stable homes. Award funds go toward AmeriCorps member allowances and program administrative costs.
During the 2019-2020 service year, Habitat AmeriCorps members are expected to contribute more than 600,000 hours of service toward building or improving Habitat homes in 130 communities nationwide, alongside future and existing homeowners and other volunteers.
At UCHFH, AmeriCorps member Trent Carter is serving his second year and will continue the work of Community Outreach in Overton County.
