PEACE CORPS Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 147 / Friday, July 31, 2015 / Proposed Rules

PEACE CORPS 22 CFR Part 305 RIN 0420-AA26

Eligibility and Standards for Peace Corps Volunteer Service

AGENCY: Peace Corps.

ACTION: Proposed rule.

SUMMARY: This proposed regulation would restate and update the requirements for eligibility for Peace Corps Volunteer service, and the factors considered in the assessment and selection of eligible applicants for training and service. The requirements and factors for eligibility and selection were last published in 1984. A revision of the regulation is necessary to conform to changes in Federal laws and regulations, particularly with respect to those prohibiting discrimination on the basis of disability, and to reflect policy changes made by the Peace Corps.

DATES: Comments due on or before August 31, 2015.

ADDRESSES: Address all comments to Anthony F. Marra, Associate General Counsel, Peace Corps, 1111 20th Street NW., Washington, DC 20526. Comments may also be sent electronically to the following email address: pcfr@

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Colin Jones, Office of the General Counsel, Policy and Program Analyst, 1111 20th Street NW., Washington, DC 20526, and 202-692-2164.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Under the Peace Corps Act (22 U.S.C. 2501 et seq.), the Peace Corps is authorized to enroll qualified US citizens and nationals as Volunteers to serve abroad, under conditions of hardship if necessary, (i) to help the people of interested countries meet their need for trained personnel, particularly in meeting the basic needs of those living in the poorest areas of such countries, (ii) to help promote a better understanding of the American people on the part of the people served, and (iii) to help promote a better understanding of other peoples on the part of the American people. The Peace Corps is authorized to establish the terms and conditions of enrollment of Volunteers, as well as the terms and conditions of service. The proposed rule would revise and update rules concerning eligibility and selection standards for Peace Corps Volunteer service, which were last published in the Federal Register over 30 years ago (49 FR 38939, October 2, 1984), and entered into effect November 1, 1984, and currently appear at 22 CFR part 305.
