Original Press Release

On July 7, the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) announced the award of more than $121 million in Apprenticeship Building America grants to strengthen and modernize Registered Apprenticeship programs and enable workers to find a reliable pathway to the middle class.  Significant interest in Apprenticeship Building America grants led the department to secure supplemental funding to announce additional recipients.  Therefore, on August 24th, U.S. DOL announced the award of $50 million in Apprenticeship Building America grant funding for Registered Apprenticeship hubs – organizations that help employers design, develop and deliver programs – and support the establishment, scaling and expansion of Registered Apprenticeship programs in new and fast-growing industries and occupations.

Through these announcements, the department has awarded $171 million to fund 39 grantees, including more than $78 million focused on equity and partnerships as well as pre-apprenticeship activities. The Apprenticeship Building America grant program advances the department’s efforts to expand and modernize Registered Apprenticeship by increasing the number of programs and apprentices, diversifying the industries that use Registered Apprenticeship and improving the access to and performance of Registered Apprenticeship Programs for underrepresented and underserved communities.

Funding was awarded in four categories:

  • State Apprenticeship System Building and Modernization.
  • Expansion of Registered Apprenticeship Program Opportunities for Youth.
  • Ensuring Equitable Registered Apprenticeship Program Pathways through Pre-Apprenticeship Leading to RAP enrollment and Equity Partnerships.
  • Registered Apprenticeship Hubs to facilitate the establishment, scaling and expansion of Registered Apprenticeship Programs in new and fast-growing industries and occupations.
