In 1994, Congress designated the Martin Luther King Jr. Federal Holiday as a national day of service and charged the Corporation for National and Community Service with leading this effort. Taking place each year on the weekend before the third Monday in January, the MLK holiday is the only federal holiday observed as a national day of service – a "day on, not a day off."
