Posted by - On February 01, 2008 (EST)
The Employment and Training Administration (ETA), U.S. Department of Labor (DOL), announces the availability of approximately $10 million in grant funds for the Energy Industry and Construction and Skilled Trades in the Energy Industry. The President's HGJTI is a strategic effort to prepare workers for new and increasing job opportunities in high-growth, high-demand, and economically vital industries and sectors of the American economy.
Grant funds awarded under this Solicitation for Grant Applications (SGA) should be used to implement and replicate high-impact, industry-driven training solutions that address identified workforce challenges in the energy industry or in the construction and skilled trade occupations that support the energy industry.
Each solution must take place in the context of a regional talent development strategy designed to contribute to a strong regional economy. The solutions must be developed and implemented by a strategic regional partnership, which includes leaders from the workforce investment system, business and industry, and the education and training community, as well as other public and private sector partners that bring critical assets to the joint venture.
Applicants may be public, private for-profit or private non-profit organizations. It is anticipated that average individual awards will fall within the range of $500,000 to $1 million.
This webinar will review the background information and requirements for prospective applicants for the SGA.
