The U.S. Department of Labor announced Wednesday it has awarded $4.6 million for "green" job training to dislocated workers and others in Baltimore and Prince George's counties. The grant recipient, H-CAP Inc., will provide training to prepare job seekers and entry-level environmental services for "new and emerging green occupations" in the health care industry, the department said. The grant also will cover workers in California, New York, Washington and the District of Columbia. Separately, the Associated Builders and Contractors announced it has received a $90,000 grant from the Turner Foundation in Atlanta to help provide training in green building and sustainability practices.
