Overnight on Tuesday, December 15 Congress finally released the FY16 omnibus appropriations bill. Good news is that all three Senior Corps programs were level funded at FY15 levels ($107.7 million). No funding cuts for FGP! The Bill is expected to be pass Congress on Friday, December 18 and signed into law by the President.
Thanks to all of your efforts on educating the Hill on the importance and success of FGP!
