Fy16 Environmental Workforce Development And Job: SUMMARY: This notice announces the availability of funds and solicits proposals from eligible entities, including nonprofit organizations, to deliver environmental workforce development and
job training programs that recruit, train, and place local, unemployed and under-employed residents with the skills needed to secure full-time employment in the environmental field, with a
focus on solid and hazardous waste remediation, environmental health and safety, integrated pest
management, and wastewater-related training.
While Environmental Workforce Development and Job Training grants require that Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response (HAZWOPER) training be provided to all individuals being trained, as outlined in Section III.C., applicants may design their own curricula and choose what types of supplemental environmental training they want to deliver as referenced in Section I.C. Additionally, under this competition, applicants also may choose to deliver training in various other environmental media as referenced in Section I.B. EPA encourages
applicants to develop their curricula based on local labor market assessments and employers’
hiring needs, while also delivering comprehensive training that results in graduates securing multiple certifications.

For the purposes of these guidelines, the term “grant” refers to the cooperative agreement that EPA will award to a successful applicant. Please refer to Section II.C for a description of EPA’s anticipated substantial involvement in the financial assistance agreements awarded under these guidelines.

NOTE: EPA also urges applicants to review the Frequently Asked Questions, which can be
