Dear Friend,

I wanted to inform you of some grant opportunities that recently became available through the Department of Labor. The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 that was signed into law earlier this year designates $500 million for projects that prepare workers for careers in the energy efficiency and renewable energy sectors.

The purpose of these grants, which fund both green job training and research projects, is to teach workers the skills required in these emerging career fields. These efforts will lead program participants to job placement and ultimately promote economic growth.

Below is a list of available grant opportunities that organizations can apply for to aquire funding towards green job training in the 9th Congressional District of California.

Green Capacity Building: This grant supports building for organizations to provide training for entry-level positions leading to career pathways and/or additional training in the energy efficiency and renewable energy industries. Funds are available for projects that build the capacity of DOL-funded training programs to ensure that targeted groups are prepared to meet the needs of our country's expanding green industries.
Amount Available: $5 million
Deadline: August 5, 2009
