President Joe Biden wants $8 billion in taxpayer funds to support his green jobs training program for Americans.

Biden requested the funds for the American Climate Corps (ACC), a green jobs training program Biden established via executive action in 2023, in his budget request for fiscal year 2025.

During Thursday’s State of the Union address, Biden stated that he intends to triple the number of participants in the ACC by the end of the decade.
