Green Capacity Building Grants will support capacity building for organizations to provide training for entry-level positions leading to career pathways in the energy efficiency and renewable energy industries. The grants will help individuals acquire the skills needed to enter and advance in green industries and occupations by building the capacity of active Department of Labor-funded training programs, particularly for youth, to provide education and training in the key skills and competencies required in these green industries and occupations.
