DEED Launches Clean Economy Equitable Workforce Competitive Grant

The Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development launched the new Clean Economy Equitable Workforce initiative, a workforce development program focused on preparing workers who are Black, Indigenous or People of Color for good-paying construction-related jobs in the growing clean energy and energy efficiency fields.

The initiative will invest $3 million to connect community organizations that have deep networks within BIPOC and immigrant communities statewide with union construction apprenticeship programs in clean energy and efficiency businesses.

The goals are to build pathways for BIPOC Minnesota workers into union construction trades in the growing clean economy sector and to develop a skilled workforce to support the state‚Äôs transition to a green economy.
