$1.25 million in federal grants for green jobs

From the Next Great City newsletter:

Pennsylvania has been selected to receive a $1.25 million State Labor Market Information Improvement grant from the Department of Labor to assess economic activity in energy efficiency and renewable energy industries and identify occupations within those industries. The Commonwealth will also receive $100,000 through the Green Capacity Building grant program to increase capacity for green job training programs.    

Pennsylvania is already a nationally recognized green jobs leader, and this funding, along with passage of supportive legislation like House Bill 80, will help promote local business growth and green job creation, and attract investment to Philadelphia and throughout the state.
