About MARC

The MARC Green Consortium
Real-time data for real-life decisions.
In 2009, the Mid-Atlantic Regional Collaborative received a $4 million grant from the U.S. Department of Labor’s Employment and Training Administration to conduct innovative labor market information (LMI) activities to support the strategic expansion of a regional green economy. Known as the MARC Green Consortium, the grant was awarded to Maryland Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation on behalf of the District of Columbia, Maryland, and Virginia. The project is administered by the Maryland Workforce Corporation.
Deliverables include: a comprehensive three-state regional green employment, education, and training survey of appoximately 10,000 employers; state-specific research on the green workforce and training providers; the online integration of the District of Columbia, Maryland, and Virginia’s LMI and labor exchange capabilities; and a state-of the-art regional green jobs portal: The portal will be fully operational in May 2011.
