Moving Forward Rural Development Project Coordinator
Energy Systems Network (ESN) is a non-profit initiative of the Central Indiana Corporate Partnership (CICP), headquartered in Indianapolis focused on growing the clean technology sector. ESN leverages its network of global thought leaders to develop integrated energy solutions to increase quality of life for today and tomorrow. Our collective focus is to reduce costs, emissions and waste; influence policy; and advance technological innovation. ESN is working with the Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority to encourage developer teams to build sustainable affordable housing developments with integrated transportation options. This project, called Moving Forward, will enhance the quality of life for Hoosiers by providing quality housing and transportation while reducing the cost of ownership for residents. For the latest iteration of Moving Forward, ESN and IHCDA are partnering with the US Department of Agriculture to update affordable housing developments throughout rural Indiana. This project, called Moving Forward Rural Development, will enhance the quality of life for Hoosiers by updating the energy efficiency of their existing homes and providing essential amenities to the community. ESN is seeking a motivated, highly capable individual to serve as a Project Coordinator for Moving Forward Rural Development and provide aid for three Moving Forward development teams as they work to manage a portfolio of up to 30 rural development properties across the state of Indiana and retrofit them to be more energy efficient, while also identifying methods to further improve their quality of life. VISTA members will work out of Indianapolis and will be expected to travel throughout Indiana as needed to work directly with the communities in which developments are slated. Current student in graduate school program, or completed graduate degree preferred.
