McMorris Rodgers Announces New Funding for Spokane Senior Volunteers

YMCA of the Inland Northwest one of 233 organizations to receive funding nationwide

WASHINGTON, DC –Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA-05) today announced that the YMCA of the Inland Northwest received a $101,716 grant to support Eastern Washington senior volunteer activities from the Corporation of National and Community Service (CNCS).

“I’m honored to recognize the outstanding commitment to service in Spokane and the entire state of Washington. YMCA of the Inland Northwest volunteers are making a real difference in our community, and I can think of no better way to give back. RSVP of Spokane County provides senior volunteers to organizations throughout the county and strengthens our schools, day care centers, food banks, health care centers, and senior centers. These volunteers are making a real difference in people’s lives.”

The Congresswoman also offered her congratulations to the five additional Washington organizations that received RSVP funding: Lower Columbia Community Action Council; the Human Services Council; Central Washington University; Yakima Valley Community College; Catholic Community Services of Western Washington.

These grants were awarded as part of a competitive grant process for RSVP, one of three Senior Corps programs administered by CNCS. Established in 1971, RSVP engages older Americans in volunteer opportunities across the country. These volunteers have been a critical resource for nationwide response efforts—in everything from hunger prevention to natural disasters.

Senior Corps is a program of the Corporation of National and Community Service, a federal agency that engages more than five million Americans of all ages and backgrounds in service each year through its Senior Corps, AmeriCorps, and Social Innovation Fund programs.
