Grant of $2,500 to a Minnesota nonprofit organization or government entity including public school districts for the development and expansion of the public works workforce. The purpose of this program is to promote a diverse workforce through training, education, and awareness initiatives oriented toward underrepresented populations.

The Minnesota Chapter of the American Public Works Association (APWA-MN) Diversity & Inclusion Committee works to advance diversity and inclusiveness throughout the APWA-MN Chapter -- placing value on all individuals and their different perspectives, and promoting the process for all to be part of the chapter. Committee goals are to retain, recruit, and encourage diverse populations within the field of public works.

The APWA-MN Diversity Committee recognizes, appreciates and fosters the synergy which is created when the work environment values the differences in individuals and practices inclusiveness and open communication.

Applicant organizations must directly or indirectly support students or job seekers interested in advancing their career in Civil Engineering, Public Works Administration, or closely related field. Consideration will be given to experience related to the field of public works, stated goals of the organization, financial need, ability to introduce new individuals to the field of public works and its opportunities, and overall effectiveness of the organization to achieve the Diversity Grant objective.
