Indiana getting $6 million for green jobs and technologies


The Southeastern Indiana Small Business Development Center’s role locally also will be that of a grant partner, support organization and to aid in training.

One area business working with the SISBDC that is looking to expand its staff and train new employees is Scottsburg-based Autobeyours, said Blayr Barnard, regional director for the SISBDC.

The green business takes damaged Toyota Priuses, repairs them, includes their own technology and creates a vehicle that can get up to 100 mpg.

The $6 million grant is the second grant awarded to the workforce development department to advance green jobs and technology, as it received a $4 million grant in November to study the green automobile sector, the release says.
