The U.S. Department of Labor, in partnership with the Department of Commerce, the Small Business Administration and the Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC), has announced the availability of up to $35.5 million to help communities and workers successfully adapt to changes in the coal industry and power sector.

The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL), in partnership with the Department of Commerce (DOC), the Small Business Administration (SBA) and the Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC) has announced the availability of up to $35.5 million to help communities and workers successfully adapt to changes in the coal industry and power sector.

“Recent changes in the energy economy have had a profound impact on Appalachian families and communities that have been sustained by the coal industry for generations,” said U.S. Secretary of Labor Thomas E. Perez, in a statement. “We have a moral imperative to work together to ensure we all succeed. That’s what the POWER initiative is all about — developing truly cohesive relationships at the federal, state and local level to create real economic opportunities for families throughout the region.”

DOL said the grant is being made available as part of the Partnerships for Opportunity and Workforce and Economic Revitalization initiative, better known as POWER, and led by the Commerce Department's Economic Development Agency.

According to the release, up to $20 million will be made available through the Department of Labor, up to $12.5 million in funding through the Department of Commerce, up to $2.5 million through the Small Business Administration and up to $500,000 through Appalachian Regional Commission.

Eligible entities will include partnerships of regionally-driven economic development and workforce development organizations in impacted coal communities, DOL said.

The deadline to submit an application for DOC, SBA and ARC funding is July 10, 2015. DOL funding applications will be accepted on a rolling basis.

Personnel from the National Endowment for the Humanities and the Institute of Museum and Library Services recently joined university, foundation and other nonprofit officials to explore the potential for crowdsourcing to broaden the reach of a diverse array of institutions.

Personnel from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) and the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) recently joined university, foundation and other nonprofit officials to explore the potential for crowdsourcing to broaden the reach of a diverse array of institutions. The meeting, which took place May 6–8, included lead organizers such as Dartmouth College and the University of Maryland-College Park, with additional support from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.

“Engaging the Public: Best Practices in Crowdsourcing Across the Disciplines” brought together over 60 invited stakeholders from the humanities, sciences and cultural heritage domains to share their experiences managing digital projects that invite contributions from virtual volunteers, NEH said in a release. The event, which was part of a series of IMLS-funded workshops, will help shape the Crowd Consortium for Libraries and Archives (CCLA), a forum that enables a national conversation about the most pressing needs and challenges regarding crowdsourcing in the cultural heritage domain, the agency said.

Meeting participants included well-known humanities scholars, scientific researchers and experts from a range of libraries, archives and museums, including:

  • Project director Mary Flanagan, Sherman Fairchild Distinguished Professor in Digital Humanities and director of Tiltfactor Lab at Dartmouth College;
  • Chris Lintott, professor of astrophysics and citizen science at Oxford University and co-founder of the citizen science initiative Zooniverse; and
  • Ben Vershbow, director of NYPL Labs at the New York Public Library.
