Summary

In Massachussetts, there has been well-documented and significant demand for weatherization services and a clear labor gap to meet this need. The goal of this project is to create a permanent weatherization training center that trains installers, crew chiefs, and contractor owners. The training cycle will consist of classroom, laboratory, and on-the-job-training coupled with ongoing individualized case management services that will include job placement support. As an antipoverty agency, the South Middlesex Opportunity Council (SMOC) will focus on recruiting unemployed, underemployed, and under-skilled applicants who will register with the agency’s day-labor program. In addition, SMOC will market the Weatherization Training Program to the local “One Stop Career Centers” and other employment training resources. A minimum of 20 weatherization contractors will also sign a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to hire trainees.
