July 7 -- The Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) invites comments to OMB by August 7, 2023 regarding the renewal of the Current Population Survey Civic Engagement and Volunteering Supplement.

AmeriCorps is soliciting comments concerning proposed revision of its Current Population Survey Volunteering and Civic Engagement Supplement. Since 2002, AmeriCorps has partnered with the U.S. Census Bureau and the Bureau of Labor Statistics to collect data and produced annual volunteering reports, and is mandated by the Serve America Act of 2009 to produce an annual civic health assessment in partnership with the National Conference on Citizenship. Reports, tables, and data for Volunteering and Civic Life in America (VCLA) are made public on americorps.gov, and specialized tables are made available upon request.

The proposed survey will be the only source of nationally representative data on the number of Americans who are active in their communities, through volunteering, social interactions, and civic behaviors. These measures include formal volunteering in an organization; a person's interactions with family, friends and neighbors; participation in community events; informal interactions; communication with one another on issues of public concern; and interactions with public and private institutions.

AmeriCorps seeks to renew the current information collection with revisions that are intended to enhance the survey. The information collection will otherwise be used in the same manner as the existing collection. AmeriCorps also seeks to continue using the current survey until the revised survey is approved by OMB. The current survey is due to expire on November 30, 2023.
