A public forum was held in Meridian Tuesday announcing the availability of federal funds to support new Mississippi Americorps programs.

Americorps is a national service program similar to the Peace Corps.

"We are seeking applicants for federal funds for 2003-2004 program years to operate Americorps programs," said Judy Stein. "Eligibility requirements for all applicants must be an institution of higher education, or a state education agency, or a non profit organization with a 501 C status."

Americorps members dedicate themselves to improving the lives and living conditions of others.
