Title: Pre-Implementation and Performance Plan for the Latino Development and Technology Accelerator Center

Abstract

This report discusses the Latino Development and Technology Accelerator Center (Center) and its innovative economic development program. The chapters describe the organization and the operations of a two-pillar model for training and business acceleration and how the program focuses on the economic development of a disadvantaged Chicago, Illinois, Hispanic community located in Humboldt Park. The Humboldt Park community is located 3 miles west of Chicago's affluent downtown. Humboldt Park residents have income levels below the poverty line and unemployment rates twice the national average.

  • In 2009, the Illinois State Geological Survey (ISGS), in collaboration with the Midwest Geological Sequestration Consortium (MGSC), created a regional technology training center to disseminate carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) technology gained through leadership and participation in regional carbon sequestration projects. This technology training center was titled and branded as the Sequestration Training and Education Program (STEP). Over the last six years STEP has provided local, regional, national, and international education and training opportunities for engineers, geologists, service providers, regulators, executives, K-12 students, K-12 educators, undergraduate students, graduate students, university and community college faculty members, and participants of community programsmore » and functions, community organizations, and others. The goal for STEP educational programs has been on knowledge sharing and capacity building to stimulate economic recovery and development by training personnel for commercial CCS projects. STEP has worked with local, national and international professional organizations and regional experts to leverage existing training opportunities and provide stand-alone training. This report gives detailed information on STEP activities during the grant period (2009-2015).« less
  • This program implementation plan for the Department of Energy Advanced Research and Technology Development (AR and TD) Fossil Energy Materials Program reviews the technical issues and the materials research and development needs of fossil energy technologies. The status and plans for research and development activities in the AR and TD Fossil Energy Materials Program to meet those needs are presented. Detailed information about these plans is provided for FY 1987 through FY 1989, and long-range plans are described for FY 1990 and FY 1991.

  • The purpose of this research project is to establish an implementation plan for a recycling program at William Beaumont Army Medical Center, implement and evaluate a pilot program, and provide a restatement of the hospital-wide recycling program plan based on the pilot study. The program will be composed of three essential components: a recycling team, data collection, and program design. Success evaluation criteria for the program will include: (1) demonstrated revenue generation/cost savings; (2) effective staff education; (3) specific data collection; (4) demonstrated compliance with hospital safety standards; and (5) surveys of hospital personnel. In addition to compliance with federalmore » mandate, military health care facilities which recycle can secure environmental, financial, and employee morale/ community relations benefits. The William Beaumont hospital-wide recycling program will include: increased command emphasis, improved education/communication, collection and expansion, and utilization of recycled paper.
