2017 Municipal Intern Program Project Application
Municipalities, authorities and Councils of Governments in Allegheny, Butler and Washington counties, or municipalities under Act 47 or participating in the state’s DCED Early Intervention Program, may apply for the intern program.

Municipalities wanting to participate in the 12-week intern program must submit their project applications by March 3, 2017, to the Local Government Academy by submitting the form below.
This year’s application process takes place entirely online. Before you complete the form below, we recommend you draft your answers to the following questions in a word processing document so they can be cut and pasted into the form.
What are the overall goals of the project?

For municipalities that are selected to participate in the 2017 Municipal Intern Program, a representative from your organization must attend the Municipal Intern Fair being held from noon to 2:30 p.m., Thursday March 30th at University of Pittsburgh’s William Pitt Union. It is there you will meet the student candidates to fill your internship.
This program is made possible through the leadership of Allegheny County, the Redevelopment Authority of the County of Washington, the Butler County Council of Governments and the Department of Community and Economic Development/Governor’s Center for Local Government Services.
