STLCC Recieves EPA Grant

St. Louis, MO (KTRS)  An area college is being rewarded for being “green.”

St. Louis Community College  has been selected to receive a $192,300 grant from EPA to recruit, train and place local unemployed and underemployed individuals in full-time sustainable green jobs in a range of environmental fields. The grant comes from EPA’s Environmental Workforce Development and Job Training (EWDJT) program.

This is the fifth time STLCC has received funding from the EPA grant program since 2000. Since receiving its first grant, STLCC has successfully trained 310 program graduates, more than 75 percent of whom have been placed in the local job market in specialized “in-demand” positions, such as Superfund site cleanup, ecological restoration, and lead and asbestos abatement at brownfields remediation projects, earning average hourly wages of $15.70.
