The Bureau of Reclamation operates five Job Corps Civilian Conservation Centers under a cooperative agreement with the Department of Labor, Employment and Training Administration. The Marsing Job Corps Civilian Conservation Center, operated by Reclamation, was renamed and relocated in September 1997 to a new facility in Nampa, Idaho.

The Department of Labor, Office of Job Corps, funded the new Centennial Job Corps Civilian Conservation Center facility, and a joint dedication ceremony was conducted on October 30, 1997. The facility is a 1997 Federal Energy Saver Showcase Facility.
