New!ANNOUNCING The Selection of $2.7M in FY17 Environmental Workforce Development and Job Training (EWDJT) funding

EPA is awarding approximately $2.7 million in grants to 14 communities across the country to recruit, train, and place unemployed and underemployed individuals with the skills needed to secure long-term employment in the environmental field. Each grantee will receive funds to develop and operate environmental job training programs that advance environmental justice by providing opportunities for residents living in areas impacted by contaminated lands. Local residents will secure employment within their communities conducting brownfields remediation, Superfund cleanup, wastewater management, solid waste recycling and cleanup, integrated pest management, chemical safety, solar installation, and other environmental work.
