|Subject:||[CPEO-BIF] Brownfields Job Training Grants|
EPA has announced the a funding opportunity for Brownfields Job Training
Grants. the deadline for submitting proposals is December 1, 2009.
DescriptionBrownfields Job Training Grants provide funding to governmental entities and nonprofit organizations to recruit, train, and place local unemployed and under-employed, predominantly low-income and minority residents. The goal of the training is to provide these individuals with skills needed to acquire full-time, sustainable careers in the green economy and brownfields redevelopment work. Brownfields Job Training Grants help residents take advantage of the jobs created by the assessment, cleanup, and redevelopment of brownfields in their communities. While Brownfields Job Training Grants focus on hazardous waste remediation and cleanup, the program emphasizes the need to provide training on innovative and environmentally sustainable technologies and certifications aimed at equipping graduates with a diversified portfolio of skills needed to secure permanent work in a growing green jobs economy. Through the link to on-the-ground brownfields redevelopment activities, brownfields job training programs expand upon local workforce development efforts by training residents of brownfields-impacted communities for environmental jobs that cleanup contractors might otherwise fill from outside the community.
