CENTRAL OKLAHOMA CLEAN CITIES COALITION UNVEILS INTERNSHIP PROGRAM RECIPIENTS
The Association of Central Oklahoma Governments (ACOG) has been awarded grant funding for two U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Vehicle Technology Office Clean Cities University Workforce Development Program (CCUWDP) Interns for the Fall 2023 – Summer 2024 semesters.
CCUWDP is an initiative of Clean Cities, a government-industry partnership sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Vehicle Technologies Program. The Clean Cities Coalition Network of 75 Coalitions fosters the nation’s economic, environmental, and energy security by working locally to advance affordable, domestic transportation fuels, energy efficient mobility systems, and other fuel-saving technologies and practices.
The students selected for the internship will work with ACOG and the Central Oklahoma Clean Cities Coalition to advance efficient, clean air, and clean transportation technologies and strategies.
Another goal of the program is to attract and retain new Oklahoma professionals pursuing a career in public service, particularly those interested in emerging transportation opportunities.
