The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced $69.3 million in grants to provide communities with funding necessary to clean and redevelop contaminated properties, boost local economies and create jobs while protecting public health. EPA selected San Francisco for brownfields grants totaling $600,000, according to SF Environment.
EPA also selected the Hunters Point Family, a San Francisco based non-profit, for an environmental workforce development and job training grant ($200,000) to train low-income, minority residents of San Francisco’s BVHP community and place them in environmental jobs.
Orange County’s ehs International, Inc. was granted an EPA contract to train low-income, minority residents of San Francisco’s BVHP community and place them in environmental jobs. Their first class of students, in San Francisco-Young Community Developers, just graduated this week. They are ready to work. Ehs’ team trained them!
