The Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2010 enacted on December 16, 2009 provided the Peace Corps with the largest year-to-year funding increase in more than a decade. It also included a provision requiring the Director of the Peace Corps to submit a report to the Committees on Appropriations on the findings of a comprehensive assessment in the areas listed below: 1. Improving the recruitment and selection process to attract a wide diversity of highly and appropriately skilled volunteers; 2. Training and medical care for volunteers and staff; 3. Adjusting volunteer placement to reflect priority United States interests, country needs and commitment to shared goals, and volunteer skills; 4. Coordinating with international and host country development assistance organizations; 5. Lowering early termination rates; 6. Strengthening management and independent evaluation and oversight; and, 7. Any other steps needed to ensure the effective use of resources and volunteers, and to prepare for and implement an appropriate expansion of the Peace Corps.
