La., Miss. share $2.3M labor grant
Louisiana will get most of a $2.3 million federal labor grant, to be shared with Mississippi, as it studies green job growth in the states and training needed to meet that demand.
The project is funded by stimulus money from President Barack Obama's $787 billion American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.
LSU will play a lead role, assisted by Mississippi State University, in surveying 10,000 employers from each state to establish hiring and training needs related to clean-energy industry work.
