Late June 8th, the House and Senate conferees struck a deal on a $94.5 billion emergency supplemental appropriations bill funding the military and hurricane relief.  Included in the final package is $10 million to fund the NCCC's work in the Gulf Coast region through August 2007.  The bill also includes a provision renaming the AmeriCorps Ed Award, the "Segal Educational Award" in recognition of Eli Segal, the founding CEO of the Corporation for National and Community Service.  The compromised funding bill will now be sent to the House and Senate for final passage.
