DOL announces $113M available to strengthen, modernize registered apprenticeships

February 24, 2022

A new $113 million grant program intended to strengthen and modernize the Registered Apprenticeship Program (RAP) will designate up to $50 million for equity partnerships and pre-apprenticeship activities. The U.S. Department of Labor announced the new grant program to enable more workers to earn while they learn and find reliable pathways to the middle class. Using a coordinated investment strategy, the Apprenticeship Building America grant program will bring the RAP model to new sectors and industries.

Eligible applicants include nonprofits, labor organizations, public and state institutions of higher education, and county governments. Applications are due by April 25. Finalists will receive awards from $1 to $8 million. More information is available here.
