Job Training Webinar

When: Monday, June 13th, 1.00 pm

Who: Marisa Chrysochoou, TAB Program Director and William “Bill” Lariviere, EPA Region 1, Brownfields Project Officer

This webinar will provide an overview of the EPA Brownfields Job Training Program for potential partners in EPA Region 1 interested in submitting a proposal for the  FY23 solicitation with a deadline of August 2nd, 2022. EPA’s Brownfields Job Training Grant Program is refocusing the competition on training activities that support assessment, cleanup, and preparation of brownfield sites for reuse. As part of that change, the former Environmental Workforce Development and Job Training Program will now be called the Brownfields Job Training Program.

Join our webinar on Monday June 13th to find out about how you can prepare a competitive proposal for a JT grant and help build the workforce in your community. Topics covered will include:

  • Overview of brownfield JT grants provisions in the solicitation
  • Building effective partnerships
  • Resources to build and execute a successful JT program
  • Case studies of successful grantees

Note: This webinar is hosted by UCONN TAB , in addition to the national outreach webinar for JT grants hosted by EPA on June 15th at 2 pm EST.

Of those 8 communities, we are pleased to announce that 6 received the grants they applied to. Four of these were cleanup grants and two were assessment grants. If you are getting ready to prepare for an EPA grant this year, we encourage you to apply for our upcoming Fall MAP! To learn more and apply, Click HERE.
