For Local Officials

For local officials:

Environmental Resilience Institute Toolkit (ERIT)

This resource will allow users to see how peers are adapting to current environmental challenges, find tools to replicate their successes and learn about funding opportunities. 

Indiana Sustainability Development Program

Through the support of the McKinney Family Foundation, the IU Office of Sustainability places IU graduate and undergraduate students with Indiana municipalities, businesses and nonprofits to help them work on sustainability projects through the Indiana Sustainability Development Program. Student "externs" receive a stipend to work 40 hours per week for 10 weeks during the summer. Extern host applications are typically due in January for summer placements. Some funding is available to host students. 

Workshops and Webinars

A workshop and webinar series will provide municipal officials with online or in-person training on relevant topics.

Access to Experts

More than 100 researchers are on hand to help local officials answer questions specific to their communities. Contact ERI for more information.
