Energy Corps Accepting Host Site Applications

Print Article

The National Center for Appropriate Technology is accepting applications from Montana organizations interested in promoting clean and efficient energy through its Energy Corps AmeriCorps program.

The program offers help with projects involving energy education and outreach, hands-on energy assistance and community energy planning and organizing.

Host sites for Energy Corps members can be nonprofit organizations, state agencies and local governments, elementary and secondary schools, Indian tribes, colleges and universities, faith-based organizations and similar groups.

Energy Corps members are AmeriCorps members selected through a competitive national application process. These members have at minimum a college degree in a relevant field and typically have workplace and community service experience.

Projects that can be considered for Energy Corps assistance can include hands-on energy efficiency such as weatherization and alternative energy assistance; educating individuals, youth and community groups about proactively saving energy and money in their homes; and organizing communities to develop and implement strategic energy plans.
