Rhode Island's largest volunteer organization has received a nearly $74,000 grant from the federal government.

U.S. Rep. David Cicilline (sihs-ihl-EE'-nee) announced the grant Friday.                                            

It comes from the federal Corporation for National and Community Service.

The money is expected to help Serve Rhode Island recruit and train volunteers and help place them with community nonprofit organizations.

In all, the Corporation for National and Community Service awarded some $4 million in similar grants to organizations in 17 states.

Serve Rhode Island coordinates community service projects throughout the state.
