Environmental Workforce Development and Job Training Grants
The Environmental Workforce Development and Job Training Grants (EWDJT) help residents take advantage of the jobs created by the management, assessment, cleanup, and revitalization of solid and hazardous waste sites in their communities.

Environmental Workforce Development and Job Training Grants (EWDJT) provide local residents of communities historically impacted by brownfields and other environmentally contaminated properties or waste related facilities an opportunity to take environmental training offered through the programs. To date (since 1998), EPA has funded 169 job training grants totaling over $35 million through the former Brownfields Job Training Program.
