This recording serves to inform panelists serving on evaluation panels for Green Jobs Innovation Fund grant solicitations of the specific evaluation criteria. Panelists will also be informed of their roles and responsibilities during the evaluation process.
The initiative is designed to complement and extend the competitive grant awards made through the funding available for training in high growth and emerging industry sectors under the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act of 2009 (Recovery Act). The Employment and Training Administration (ETA) is considering several strategies to help workers access green training and green career pathways, including: (1) enhanced pre-apprenticeship and Registered Apprenticeship programs in green industry sectors and occupations; (2) competitive grants for green career pathways that include a focus on developing education opportunities in green industry sectors and occupations; and, (3) incentivizing innovative partnerships that effectively connect community-based organizations in underserved communities with the workforce investment system to better serve targeted populations through a new focus on career advancement in green industry sectors. Grants in the total amount of $40 million will be awarded. The closing date for applications is 3/29/2011 at 4pm and the link to the webpage posting our solicitations is:http://www.doleta.gov/grants/find_grants.cfm
