The purpose of this Golden LEAF grant is to purchase and equip a mobile training lab to teach weatherization (assessing the energy efficiency of homes and providing some improvements such as insulation, weather stripping, etc.) to students at Martin, Edgecombe, and Wilson Community Colleges. Funding would complement JobsNOW support already made available to the Colleges and will leverage federal stimulus funding available for weatherization programs. It is anticipated that 35 to 50 students will receive training over the next twelve to fifteen months.
