San Diego Region Awarded $4 Million Workforce Development Grant to Support Expanding Biofuels Industry
Date:6/29/2010

SAN DIEGO, June 29 /PRNewswire/ -- The California Department of Labor today awarded the San Diego region a $4 million grant to implement new workforce training programs for careers in the emerging biofuels industry.  The San Diego Biofuels Initiative, a collaborative effort including CleanTECH San Diego, BIOCOM, San Diego Regional EDC, San Diego Center for Algae Biotechnology (SD-CAB) and the San Diego Workforce Partnership, captured the grant through the California Labor and Workforce Development Agency's "Green Innovation Challenge."  

The San Diego Biofuels Initiative's proposal, titled the Educating and Developing Workers for the Green Economy (EDGE Initiative) will provide education, training and placement services to unemployed and dislocated workers within San Diego and the Imperial Valley. The EDGE Initiative designed a career-directed approach to help workers gain both employment and the skills and training necessary to move up the career ladder in an industry that will continue to flourish as governments and consumers worldwide seek cleaner alternatives to fossil fuels.

The EDGE Initiative was one of five programs selected to receive a portion of the $20 million in grants funded through the State's Contingency Fund and the Federal Workforce Investment Act.

"This award shows San Diego at its best," said Lisa Bicker, CEO of CleanTECH San Diego.  "It exemplifies a successful collaboration between industry, academia and government that will result in putting San Diegans to work while solving the critical challenge of energy independence and security."
