Atlanta, GA (August 1, 2018) – The Georgia Commission for Service and Volunteerism (GCSV), the Governor-appointed state service commission housed within the Georgia Department of Community Affairs (DCA), announced today that Georgia has received $3,442,262 in AmeriCorps funding from the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS), the federal agency for volunteering and service programs.
