Training Grants for Green Jobs

by Green Jobs Ready on February 1, 2010


On January 20th, Secretary of Labor Hilda L. Solis announced a new grant program to help train workers in environmental jobs.  The grant gives around 190 million dollars to states to fund training for green jobs.  This incentive is part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.  The purposes of the grants are to both help boost jobs and give jobs to those who are out of work, as well as promote more efficient and environmentally friendly industries.

These grants are given out to the states in amounts ranging from 2 to 6 million dollars.  The states will use this money to help improve training in several different fields.  Specifically, the money should not only help improve training, but allow a path for low income families to become skilled environmental workers.  The grant will promote wind energy education, solar energy education, and other types of green training.

In order to benefit from this grant, look for information at One-Stop Career Centers.  They will be provided education and training to help both employed and unemployed workers obtain environmental engineering jobs, alternative energy jobs, environmental internships, solar energy jobs, and wind power jobs.  Even workers currently on unemployment may be able to participate in this training without losing their unemployment.

Boots on the Roof, a leading Renewable energy training institute, is enrolling students into its Renewable Energy Training classes. For more information on qualifications, Training Dates and Locations, click here.
