County gets portion of ‘green’ job training grant money

The California Employment Development Department received a $6 million federal economic stimulus grant Wednesday for “green” jobs training programs in five regions in the state, including San Diego County.

The grant was among $190 million announced today by Secretary of Labor Hilda L. Solis for state workforce and career agencies throughout the country for education and training programs to teach workers the skills required to get jobs in emerging “green” industries, including energy efficiency and renewable energy.

“These grants will help workers gain access to good jobs, while supporting the sort of statewide energy efficiency strategies that play a crucial role in building the green economy of the 21st century,” Solis said.

In San Diego County, the grant will be used for energy efficiency training programs that focus on green building and retrofits, according to the Department of Labor.
