Frequently Asked Questions About Environmental Workforce Development and Job Training (EWDJT) Grants

EPA prepared these Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) and answers to assist prospective applicants with preparing Environmental Workforce Development and Job Training (EWDJT) Grant proposals.

Current EWDJT Grant recipients may also benefit from FAQs that are related to general program policies (and are not related to a specific competition cycle). Recipients should defer to their cooperative agreement Terms and Conditions and the FAQs issued for the fiscal year they applied for EWDJT Grant funding.

If the information in the FAQs differs from information in the statute, regulation, or the Guidelines, then the statute, regulation or the Guidelines will take precedence. The FAQs will be updated periodically as we continue to receive questions.
