Americorps struggling under TrumpNearly a decade after former President Barack Obama provided a major shot in the arm for the U.S. government's premier civil service program with a healthy infusion of cash, it now faces the end of the road under the Trump administration.

Exactly eight years ago Friday, Obama pledged an additional $6 billion for AmeriCorps, the government's 23-year-old civil society program that provides much-needed work on a number of fronts from coast to coast.

The program, created in September 1993 and launched in 1994 under former President Bill Clinton, offers full- and part-time opportunities for young Americans to perform valued services in various U.S. communities that might otherwise go ignored by overworked federal agencies. Three months after his inauguration, Obama submitted the cash as an effort to grow AmeriCorps' workforce from 75,000 to 250,000 by 2019.
