The Brownfields Job Training (JT) Grants allow nonprofits, local governments, and other organizations to recruit, train, and place unemployed and under-employed residents of areas affected by the presence of brownfield sites. Through the JT Program, graduates develop the skills needed to secure full-time, sustainable employment in various aspects of hazardous and solid waste management and within the larger environmental field, including sustainable cleanup and reuse, and chemical safety. These green jobs reduce environmental contamination and build more sustainable futures for communities.
NEW: EPA’s Brownfields Job Training Grant Program is refocusing the competition on training activities that support assessment, cleanup, and reuse of brownfield sites. As part of that change, the former Environmental Workforce Development and Job Training Program will now be called the Brownfields Job Training Program.
