Welcome to the Career Skills Training Grant Program

The Career Skills Training Program provides $10 million for nonprofit-led partnerships between industry and labor organizations to create programs where students concurrently receive classroom instruction and on-the-job training to obtain an industry-related certification to install energy efficiency buildings technologies.

Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) 40513 requires that the cost share must be at least 50% of the total project costs for the Career Skills Training Program. The cost share must come from non-federal sources unless otherwise allowed by law. All sources of cost match are considered part of total project costs, and the cost match dollars will be scrutinized under the same Federal regulations as Federal dollars. Further information on cost match is detailed in section III.B in the Eligibility Information and at 2 CFR 200.306.
