AmeriCorps Disallowed Hours for Prohibited Lobbying Activity

Date Issued
Report Number
Case ID 2023-048
Report Type
The AmeriCorps Office of Inspector General (AmeriCorps OIG) investigated an allegation that College Possible staff and an AmeriCorps member were lobbying at the state capitol in Olympia, WA. AmeriCorps OIG’s investigation substantiated the allegation, and confirmed that only one member was in attendance and the lobbying activity was limited to one day. AmeriCorps OIG referred the matter to AmeriCorps State and National (ASN) and recommended it disallow the member’s service hours and a staff member’s hours that had been charged as matching expenditures for the date of the lobbying activity. AmeriCorps OIG also recommended that ASN provide additional training to College Possible on prohibited activities.
