In an effort to do all that we can for our state during this time of crisis, we have partnered with ServeMinnesota to help launch the Minnesota AmeriCorps Emergency Response Initiative. This new initiative is designed to help communities better respond to new needs brought on by the COVID-19 crisis.


As an Emergency Response Member, you will help organizations respond to significant needs in their community related to COVID-19. Service could include a combination of several response tasks such as emergency food distribution, distance learning, support to help older adults cope with social isolation and more. View the position description to learn more.

Emergency Response Members will serve one term of service in a full-time capacity (35 hours per week) beginning June 8 and ending service on August 15.

Remote and in-person positions are available throughout Minnesota.


Members are paid a stipend of $650 every two weeks during their term of service. This stipend is taxed as income, and members complete a W-4.

Those who complete their service will earn a $1,289 education award which can be used for education-related expenses at qualifying institutions, including to pay back student loans.

Federal student loans may be put in forbearance during your service period.

Health insurance and child care is provided.
