APPLICATIONS NOW AVAILABLE FOR
2019 URBAN AND HOMETOWN GREEN TEAM GRANTS
*Urban and Hometown Green Team grant applications are now available for organizations to hire youth between the ages of 15 and 29 for summer jobs in Manitoba, Municipal Relations Minister Jeff Wharton announced today.
“Green Team programs provided more than 1,200 young Manitobans employment in the summer of 2018,” said Wharton. “Investments into Green Team projects provide our youth with valuable work experience while working on projects that benefit our communities.”
Green Team provides grants to hire youth ages 15 to 29 to work on community projects between May 1 and Aug. 31. The program is split into two streams: Urban (Winnipeg) and Hometown (all other municipalities). Eligible recipients include non-profit organizations under both streams, and rural municipalities under the Hometown stream.
Priority is given to children/youth recreation and volunteer projects, as well as projects that hire Indigenous youth, visible minority youth and youth with a disability, and projects located in northern Manitoba and in areas of demonstrated need.
Non-profit organizations receive 100 per cent of wage costs and up to $250 per position for support costs. Municipal governments receive 50 per cent of wage costs and up to $125 per position for support costs, on a cost-shared basis.
Call for proposal is due Jan 15th, For more information on Green Team applications visit https://www.gov.mb.ca/mr/bldgcomm/recreg/greenteam.html
