Okay, so the stimulus bill was packed with a lot of funding for eco-initiatives and green job creation. Old news. But the question still lingers, with most of that money still yet to leak into the economy, how exactly do interested businesses secure funding and create those green jobs? The nonprofit group Green for All answers that question (and more) with its Capital Access Program, an effort designed to help green-minded businesses secure stimulus funding and enter the clean energy economy. Here's how it'll work. Green for All is launching a couple new tools to help green investors, nonprofits, and entrepreneurs get involved in the growing clean energy economy. They're offering a free webinar on September 9th, and a comprehensive online guide to help businesses and nonprofit groups secure stimulus funding to create green jobs.

According to Green for All,

Green For All's Capital Access Program (CAP) is designed to create, sustain, and scale green jobs in the U.S. CAP leverages the work of Green For All's policy and field teams to build the capacity of stakeholders and mobilize capital so that our advocacy leads to real economic recovery and environmental restoration.

And if you're interested, here are the details for the webinar: "The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act: A Webinar for Small Businesses and Nonprofits" will be held on Wednesday, September 9th at 1 pm Pacific / 4 pm Eastern.

This is a long overdue program, and should be a boon to anyone looking to start a green business, or any business looking to go green.
