San Mateo County will receive $2.5 million from the U.S. Department of Labor for the Human Services Agency's Home Energy Retrofit Occupations' (HERO) project, Rep. Anna G. Eshoo, D-Menlo Park, has announced.

The grant is part of $13.7 million allocated by the Department of Labor for job training programs at community colleges and organizations in California, according to a press release from Rep. Eshoo's office.
