Click here to view the 2016 Guidelines for Municipalities. 

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.

LGA’s Municipal Intern Program assists municipalities in finding an intern, as well as paying half of interns’ wages.

Municipalities wanting to participate in the 12-week intern program must submit their project applications by February 1, 2017, to the Local Government Academy by submitting the form below.

This year’s application process takes place entirely online.  The application form appears below.  Before you complete the form, we recommend you draft your answers to the following questions in a word processing document and cut and paste them into the form.

What are the overall goals of the project?
What are the economic, environmental, or social impacts this project will have on your community?
What are the expected learning outcomes for your intern?
What are the unique qualities of your community that would distinguish your internship from others?

Copy and paste your answers to these questions into the corresponding boxes below.

For municipalities that have been selected to participate in the 2017 Municipal Intern Program, remember to attend the Municipal Intern Fair being held from noon to 2:30 p.m., Friday, March 18, at Heinz College on CMU’s campus.  Date and location is to be determined. 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.
