Community Resilience Initiative - Supporting sustainability projects, encouraging local environmental action activities, and providing education to help households and organizations make sustainable choices. 

Community Forestry Initiative - Helping communities mitigate and prepare for climate change by preserving and increasing the tree canopy.

Home Energy Initiative - Supporting Minnesotans who are eligible for the Weatherization Assistance Program by helping households through education and services that create an immediate impact on their quality of life and cost of living. 


Our goal for the coming year is to use the power of national service to help communities mitigate and prepare for climate change.  

  • Multiple Initiatives, One Goal – Climate Impact Corps offers three different initiatives with a specific focus, all working towards creating a positive impact on our environment: Community Forestry, Home Energy, and Community Resilience.  
  • Reaching Communities Across the State – Climate Impact Corps thrives in a wide variety of context. We work with governmental agencies and non-profit organizations across Minnesota in rural, urban, and suburban settings.  
  • Building a Pipeline of Climate Leaders – Climate Impact Corps members participate in a variety of trainings designed to grow their understanding of climate change mitigation and resilience, while building specific skills for their service and beyond. AmeriCorps members with our Community Forestry and Home Energy initiatives earn credentials during their service they can use to help them launch their careers in the field.
