U.S. Department of Labor Announces $90 Million for Apprenticeship USA

Building on historic bipartisan support from Congress and leadership across a broad range of States, the United States Department of Labor (DOL) is announcing $90 million available this year through the ApprenticeshipUSA initiative. ApprenticeshipUSA is a national campaign bringing together a broad range of stakeholders, including employers, labor, States, education and workforce partners, to expand and diversify Registered Apprenticeship in the United States. Through this TEGL and a forthcoming Funding Opportunity Announcement DOL will invest a total of $61.5 million in State-led strategies to grow and diversify apprenticeship. The remaining funds will be used to invest in national intermediaries and activities to engage employers, expand and diversify Registered Apprenticeship to new sectors and under-served populations, and promote innovation and excellence in this critical earn and learn strategy.
