EPA Brownfields Job Training Grants

Posted: June 17, 2022

Deadline: August 2, 2022

Grantor: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)

Additional Information

Brownfields Job Training programs recruit, train, and retain a local, skilled workforce by prioritizing unemployed and underemployed residents to obtain the skills and credentials needed for pathways into full-time employment in the environmental field.

While Brownfields Job Training Grants require training in brownfield assessment and/or cleanup activities, these grants also require that Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response (HAZWOPER) training be provided to all individuals being trained. EPA encourages applicants to develop their curricula based on local labor market assessments and employers’ hiring needs, while also delivering comprehensive training that results in graduates securing multiple certifications.

NEW: Due to additional funding in the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, the maximum dollar value for the Job Training Grant awards increased from $200,000 to $500,000. Eligible entities are now able to request up to $500,000 in funding. Due to the larger award amount, OBLR will extend the grant performance period up to 5 years.
