The Kentucky Housing Corporation has been selected to receive almost $1 million in federal stimulus money to fund weatherization training.
The U.S. Department of Energy announced Friday that the Kentucky organization will receive $996,000 to establish a new weatherization training center in Frankfort and to expand training programs.
The Kentucky project was one of 34 in 27 states that received a total of $29 million in funding. The projects are aimed to provide job training in energy-efficient weatherization.
Kentucky's project will cost $1.2 million total, and it will use the funds to buy equipment for existing training locations and to equip and staff new locations.
