Massachusetts is going to invest ten-million-dollars for job training in green technology.

Governor Maura Healey made the announcement in Rome at the Vatican Climate Summit.

“The heroes of the clean energy revolution are the train operators, farmers, electricians, heat pump installers, wind turbine technicians – the workers who make all of this possible. We need people who are skilled and ready to fill these jobs. That’s why we’re proud to announce the Climate Careers Fund, a first-of-its-kind social impact fund to support workforce training in this critical sector,” said Governor Healey. “In Massachusetts, we have a storied history and culture of mission-driven innovation. We are America’s state of firsts – and today we’re proud to add another first to that list with the launch of the Climate Careers Fund.”

Education funding will be provided in various fields including heating technologies and electric vehicles.

It's estimated green-related opportunities will generate about 30 thousand jobs in the Commonwealth.
