EPA Awards Job Training Grants
By Grit Staff
Fifteen cities and organizations were awarded $3 million in job training grants through the Environmental Workforce Development and Job Training program from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
The grants are designed to allow the grantees to hire and train people to take on community jobs that focus on environmental problems. The goal is to put individuals to work who are dealing with unemployment while helping disadvantaged neighborhoods deal with needed cleanups.
“People want and deserve both a healthier environment and greater economic opportunity,” said Mathy Stanislaus, assistant administrator for EPA’s Office of Solid Waste and Emergency Response. “This training program for environmental jobs has a proven track record. Approximately 71 percent of graduates find employment in environmental fields that serve local communities.”
