The Department of Labor (DOL) has just made available information concerning its plans to distribute the $500 million for "green jobs" training that was included in H.R. 1, the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (for loads more information on the ARRA, visit www.recovery.gov). This may be a rich source of funding for community colleges across the country, even if not all the money is narrowly focused on job training. AACC is pleased that some of the funding will be awarded for capacity building. DOL's guidance, which is designed to help potential grant applicants prepare to apply for the funds, can be found at:
The actual Solicitation for Grant Applications should be made available in early June.
