$1 million in funding will go to Iowa State University and the Iowa Department of Economic Development to help create green jobs and fund environmental research in the state.

The money will be used to develop centers in Iowa to develop resources to test energy efficient solutions and create new green jobs and companies.

The funding was announced this week by Sen. Tom Harkin. He says the grant will boost economic development and create new jobs in Iowa, as well as providing long-term energy efficient products.
