Brownfields Job Training and Development Cooperative Agreements

EPA, other federal agencies, local job training organizations, community colleges, labor groups, and others have established partnerships to develop long-term plans for fostering workforce development through environmental training; ensure the recruitment of trainees from socio-economically disadvantaged communities; provide quality worker-training; and allow local residents an opportunity to qualify for jobs developed as a result of brownfields efforts.

The Brownfields Job Training and Development Cooperative Agreements will each be funded up to $200,000 over two years. These cooperative agreements will bring together community groups, job training organizations, educators, labor groups, investors, lenders, developers, and other affected parties to address the issue of providing environmental employment and training for residents in communities impacted by brownfields. EPA’s Brownfields Program is an organized commitment to help communities revitalize brownfields properties both environmentally and economically, mitigate potential health risks, and restore economic vitality to areas where brownfields exist.
