The Department of Labor (DOL) announces the availability of approximately $5 million in grant funds 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. Only active DOL-funded grantees (eligible grantees specified in the SGA) are eligible to apply. Specifically, this SGA supports capacity 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. The Department expects to award between 50 and 100 grants under this competition, providing awards ranging from $50,000 to $100,000.
