The ACCG Civic Affairs Foundation is seeking grant applications from counties for the 2023 GCIP. County internship grant opportunities are exclusively available for summer. The goal of the program is to enable counties to hire talented high school and college students and recent college graduates for specific projects that will: benefit county government and its citizens; give students a chance to learn first-hand about the role of county government; provide practical work experiences students can use in the job market upon graduation; and inspire young people to consider a career in county government. Any ACCG member county that has a substantive internship project proposal may apply for one or more grants. There are three internship opportunities available: 1) the general GCIP, 2) the Joan Garner Health and Human Services Internship Grant, and 3) the Dr. Jim Kundell Environmental Management Internship Grant. Additional information about GCIP, the 2023 grant application process, and the application can be found at https://www.accg.org/caf_countyinfo.php.
