Maryland Works for Wind - Workforce Development and Adult Learning
In fall of 2022, the United States Department of Commerce awarded Maryland nearly $23 million dollars under the Good Jobs Challenge grant program to foster the development of a workforce to support the emerging offshore wind industry.
Maryland Works for Wind (MWW) is a regional consortium committed to establishing Maryland as the country’s premier destination for offshore wind training, fabrication, and employment. The project includes a robust sectoral partnership inclusive of employers, unions, Local Workforce Development Areas, business alliances, and training providers. Collaboratively, the partners will cultivate a pipeline of skilled talent to support the emerging Offshore Wind clean energy industry.
Through MWW, MD Labor demonstrates its commitment to drive economic development, connect underrepresented populations to good-paying careers, and build upon existing investments. The success of MWW hinges on the development of a thriving and diverse ecosystem of Maryland-based partners, including State Agencies, such as the Maryland Energy Administration, employer partners, such as Ørsted and US Wind, as well as a multitude of other partners.
