Apply Now to Be a Host Site for the 2018-2019 Minnesota GreenCorps Program Year

The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) is now accepting applications from organizations, including cities, that are interested in hosting a Minnesota GreenCorps member, who will help the host complete environmental projects.

Minnesota GreenCorps is an environmentally focused AmeriCorps program coordinated by the MPCA, which places AmeriCorps members with organizations around the state to spend a year of service addressing critical environmental issues, while gaining experience and learning valuable job skills.

Eligible organizations include public entities (local, regional, state, tribal), school districts, not-for-profit institutions of higher education, and 501 ©(3) nonprofit organizations. Organizations may apply for Minnesota GreenCorps members who will serve on projects in the areas of:

  1. Air pollutant reduction
  2. Waste reduction, recycling, and organics management
  3. Green infrastructure improvements
  4. Community readiness and outreach

The MPCA plans to place up to 42 full-time members with host sites throughout Minnesota for the 2018-2019 program year. Members serve approximately 40 hours a week for 11 months from September 2018 through August 2019. The application deadline is 5 p.m. on March 23.
