In 2016, DOL awarded a $50.5M grant to expand Registered Apprenticeship Programs (RAPs) in the states, with an emphasis on high-growth industries and underserved populations. The investment marked the first time that the Federal Government provided funding to support States in efforts to expand and diversify RAPs to better respond to industry workforce demands.  In many states, apprenticeship is a component of, but not fully integrated into State economic, workforce, and education talent development systems.  These grants provided an opportunity to further align resources to innovate and expand apprenticeship.

In Spring 2018, DOL made approximately $50 million in continuation funding available to the 37 State Apprenticeship Expansion grantees to enable states to continue their work to expand apprenticeship with the goal of sparking an additional 10 percent growth over the following two years of the grant period of performance.
