If there is a government shut down, here are Peace Corps plans

Congress has passed and the President has signed a CR – Continuing Resolution- to fund the federal government until December 22, 2017.  It is hoped that Congress will by that time  have  passed a budget for FY2018 or a CR for a longer period of time.  Peace Corps has, however, issued its plan if there is a government shutdown on December 22, 2017.  Peace Corps plans to keep Volunteers and Trainees in place overseas and fund all those activities necessary to guarantee the health and safety of serving Volunteers and Trainees.

Peace Corps will furlough employees involved in non-essential services.  Here is the link to the Peace Corps Plan: https://s3.amazonaws.com/files.peacecorps.gov/documents/open-government/Peace_Corps_Operations_Plan_in_the_Absence_of_Appropriations.pdf
