Featured Partnership:
The Precision Employment Initiative

BlocPower, in partnership with the New York City Mayor’s Office of Criminal Justice (MOCJ), is training up to 1,500 individuals to install cutting-edge clean energy and broadband technologies.

Through the Precision Employment Initiative, BlocPower introduced its Civilian Climate Corps to New York City communities at high risk of gun violence—expanding, diversifying, and strengthening the city's climate technology workforce while improving public safety.

The program has been a success, with a job placement rate of over 50% and early data showing reduced gun violence in communities with a Civilian Climate Corps.

Utilize infrastructure and ARPA funds to “build back better,” while advancing racial, economic, and environmental justice
