Federal funding awarded for 'green' job training

January 21, 2010

Maryland will get nearly $6 million in federal stimulus money to train workers in Baltimore in "green" jobs, U.S. labor officials said Wednesday. The state Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation will receive a $5.8 million grant to train and help find jobs for dislocated workers and others, the U.S. Department of Labor announced. The assistance is part of nearly $190 million in federal stimulus being awarded to states. The idea is to teach skills required for industries such as energy efficiency and renewable power.
