Training and Employment Notice 44-08 American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 Competitive Grants for Green Job Training
Proposal Due Date TBD

The Recovery Act is intended to preserve and create jobs, promote the nation’s economic recovery, and assist those most impacted by the recession. Among other funding directed toward the Department of Labor (DOL), the Recovery Act provides $750 million for a program of competitive grants for worker training and placement in high growth and emerging industries. Of the $750 million allotted for competitive grants, the Recovery Act designates $500 million for projects that prepare workers for careers in the energy efficiency and renewable energy sectors described in Section 171(e)(1)(B) of the Workforce Investment Act of 1998 (WIA), as amended to incorporate the Green Jobs Act of 2007. This notice describes the Employment and Training Administration’s (ETA) initial plans for awarding these green job training¬Ě funds under the Recovery Act so that interested organizations can begin to plan for the application process and can strengthen or build partnerships to be successful applicants.
