EPA Announces Proposal Guidelines for Brownfields Job Training and Development Demonstration Pilots. http://www.epa.gov/brownfields/html-doc/jtguide.htm The deadline for pilot applications is May 29, 1998. EPA's Brownfields Job Training and Development Demonstration Pilots The brownfields environmental job training and development pilots will each be funded up to $200,000 over two years. These funds are to be used to bring together community groups, job training organizations, educators, investors, lenders, developers, and other affected parties to address the issue of providing training for residents in communities impacted by brownfields. The goals of the pilots are to facilitate cleanup of brownfields sites contaminated with hazardous substances and prepare the trainees for future employment in the environmental field. EPA expects to select approximately 10 Brownfields Environmental Job Training and Development pilots by the end of July 1998. Pilot applicants must be located within or near one of the 121 pre-1998 brownfields assessment pilot communities (http://www.epa.gov/swerosps/bf/plocat.htm). Colleges, universities, non-profit training centers, community job training organizations, states, cities, towns, counties, U.S. Territories, and Federally recognized Indian Tribes are eligible to apply for the funds. EPA welcomes and encourages applications from coalitions of such entities, but a single eligible entity must be identified as the legal recipient. Entities with experience in providing environmental job training and placement programs are invited to apply. The deadline for the new applications for the 1998 environmental job training and development pilots is May 29, 1998.
