Labor has awarded $5.8 million to the State to prepare Maryland workers for
emerging careers in the green industry. 


The State Energy Sector Partnership (SESP) grant will focus on
partnering businesses, training, and one-stop career centers to identify
training opportunities to prepare job seekers and incumbent workers for careers
