Green Team grants allow communities to hire youth aged 15 to 29 to work on community projects between May 1 and Aug. 31. Eligible recipients include non-profit organizations in Winnipeg and rural Manitoba and municipal governments in rural Manitoba.
Priorities for the 2021 summer season are focused on community-based organizations and municipal governments that can offer full-time employment opportunities for youth and on projects that support COVID-19 response and recovery efforts.
The grants cover 100 per cent of wage costs and $250 per position for support costs in non-profit organizations. Municipal governments receive 50 per cent of wage costs and $125 per position for support costs, on a cost-shared basis.
The deadline for applications is Feb. 15. For more information on Green Team applications, visit www.manitobago.ca.
