Support Services

Resources

Each support service represents an expenditure of staff and funds, which is not an eligible expense under current EPA Environmental Workforce Development and Job Training (EWDJT) funding guidelines. Review each program grant and contribution carefully, determining eligible and ineligible expenditures.

By leveraging the services of multiple organizations, individuals can be successful in resolving issues that would otherwise constrain them from entering an environmental career. The key to bridging services is good communication, information exchange, and resource sharing. Forming partnerships is addressed further in the chapter Building Partnerships.

When student support services are not available, the only option is to recruit students who do not require supplemental services. Eliminating or minimizing student support services dramatically reduces the complexity and cost of an EWDJT program. In such cases, make it clear prior to and during recruitment of students what the EWDJT program provides and what it does not provide. Entrants who need support services must search outside the program. As harsh as this approach appears, EWDJT programs with partners that cannot provide essential student support must face the reality of having a severely limited EWDJT program.
