Yesterday the U.S. Senate gave final congressional approval of a $400 budget to fund the Peace Corps in Fiscal Year 2010.
President Obama is expected to sign the appropriations package into law shortly.
The $400 million appropriation for Peace Corps is larger than Obama’s budget request, and is the result of work that Rajeev and others did to get the government to support the Peace Corps agency.
Thank you, Rajeev! You’re the Little RPCV That Could!
