The Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) and Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) include unprecedented funding for clean energy, including resources to cultivate the diverse workforce of the future. Workforce professionals across the country are preparing to meet the dramatic need to scale efforts, but resources and support are needed, especially at the local and regional levels.
Join the National Clean Energy Workforce Alliance and federal and state funders for an informative discussion about where to get started to secure available workforce funding. We will discuss both funding appropriated through the IRA and BIL, as well as other resources available to comply with new labor standards and accelerate the equitable development of local and regional workforce ecosystems.
