AMERICORPS FUNDING FULLY RESTORED

After a fiscal year that saw drastic cuts in its funding, it appears that the federal "Americorps" volunteer program in Maine has been fully restored.

The announcement was made Monday morning in Lewiston. Americorps is a network of public service programs around the country reaching some 2-million americans.

The half-million dollars Maine will get this year will be distributed to agencies that help people do for themselves. With funding fully restored, some 96 new Americorps members will be able to serve Maine's communities.
