Brownfields Job Training Grant Brochure

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) established the Brownfields Job Training Program to help ensure that the residents of
communities most affected by brownfields would share in the benefits of their cleanup and
reuse. The Job Training Program transforms lives by empowering unemployed and underemployed, predominantly low-income and
minority residents of Brownfields communities. The Program does this by providing funding and technical assistance for environmental cleanup
and health and safety training to organizations currently training residents of brownfieldsimpacted
communities who are seeking new
skills and greater earning potential. The Program helps clean up brownfields, spurs sustainable economic development, and creates a pool of skilled workers capable of
meeting the environmental cleanup and green jobs industries’ demand for workers.
