What could EPA do to expand and improve our job training programs, such as the Superfund Job Training Initiative and the Environmental Workforce Development and Job Training Program?
EPA programs such as the Environmental Workforce Development and Job Training Program and the Superfund Job Training Initiative train people for careers in the environmental cleanup field. Through these programs, EPA offers grants and technical assistance to communities affected by contaminated land cleanup so that the money associated with the cleanup stays in the surrounding community. Over the years, thousands of people have graduated from EPA-supported programs, with more than 3,500 finding full-time employment in the environmental field.
