The Lowe’s Foundation’s Launched Gable Grants Program

The Gable Grants program will provide $50 million over the next 5 years to directly support community and technical colleges and community-based nonprofit organizations to help prepare 50,000 people for careers in the skilled trades. Trades like plumbing, electrical, carpentry, HVAC, appliance repair and construction are facing a critical shortage of skilled tradespeople. These grants will support the groups working to increase the number of young and diverse tradespeople.

Real-World Energy and Climate Projects Mean Better Education and Stronger Workforce Development

The workforce wants clean, green jobs that address climate change and have positive benefits for society. We see this anecdotally when we work with youth, but the data bears it out, as well. Especially if you’re hoping to attract young people, people of color and women: they are not only more likely to be affected by a changing climate, but are also more concerned. We also know that we need more tradespeople to reach our future energy goals.
