The DOL H-1B Ready to Work Petrochem Grant is an initiative that targets the petrochemical sector in the Gulf Coast area to provide training for positions that are in high demand for the industry.  A group of community colleges have come together to train long-term unemployed or underemployed workers through this grant. 

The training you could receive through this grant would prepare you for a career that falls under the High-Skill, High-Growth jobs targeted by the Gulf Coast Workforce Board.  Each college is partnering with local industry employers that are offering internships or straight employment.  Our goal is to link the two through job readiness seminars and job fairs to participants of the grant.
