American Apprenticeship Initiative: The Employment and Training Administration (ETA), U.S. Department of Labor (DOL, or the department, or we), announces the availability of approximately $100 million in grant funds authorized by Section 414(c) of the American Competitiveness and Workforce Improvement Act of 1998 (ACWIA), as amended (codified at 29 USC 2916a), for the American Apprenticeship Initiative. This initiative is intended to provide a catalyst in supporting a uniquely American Apprenticeship system that meets our country’s particular economic, industry and workforce needs. American Apprenticeships (also referred to as Registered Apprenticeships) are innovative work-based learning and post-secondary earn-and- learn models that meet national standards for registration with the U.S. Department of Labor (or federally recognized State Apprenticeship Agencies).
Approximately $100 million is expected to be available to fund approximately 25 grants. Grant awards will range from $2.5 - 5 million. Grant awards will be made only to the extent that funds are available.
