Project Title & Description
St. Nicholas Job Training Stimulus Grant
St. Nicholas Neighborhood Preservation Corporation will use stimulus funding to develop and implement a Job Training program to provide brownfields job training to residents of communities which have received EPA brownfields assessment and/or cleanup grants in Brooklyn, New York. "Brownfields" are properties whose expansion, redevelopment or reuse may be complicated by the presence of hazardous substances or other pollutants or contaminants, and training is necessary to address the contamination. These actions will benefit the grantee and the public through facilitating future cleanup and redevelopment of local properties and it will promote economic recovery through job creation and training.
