$100 Million.

This is the largest single federal investment in apprenticeship ever in the U.S.

Its aim is to transform our workforce for the 21st century.

Through this grant, the Department of Labor will expand apprenticeships from the traditional skilled trades to new high-tech, high-demand industries like healthcare, IT, advanced manufacturing, and others. These grants will help programs that create career pathways and align with post-secondary education – so apprenticeships are never an either/or proposition between starting out on an exciting career path and getting an education. And the grants will encourage strong public-private partnerships to ensure these apprenticeships are sustainable for the long run.
