$100 Million More for Green Grants Out the Door
In the new video below, Labor Secretary Solis announces $100 million in green jobs training grants. These grants are part of a larger Recovery Act initiative — totaling $500 million — to prepare workers for careers in the energy efficiency and renewable energy industries. It's well understood how much of a win-win these investments are, providing some of the most immediate job-creation opportunities around and producing a more energy-efficient America for the long term.
