Apprenticeship Expansion Grant (AEG-4) RFA


Description:

The New York State Department of Labor (NYSDOL) is making up to $3M in Title I Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) Statewide Activities funding available under the Apprenticeship Expansion Grant (AEG-4) Request for Applications (RFA).  The purpose of this RFA is to expand New York State (NYS) Registered Apprenticeship (RA) training by increasing employment opportunities for approximately 130 apprentices, with a focus on underrepresented populations.  These apprentices will enter trades in high-demand occupations, with a focus on the emerging fields of Advanced Manufacturing, Healthcare, Hospitality, and Information Technology, as well as other in-demand occupations.

This funding will cover costs associated with training apprentices through RA, such as Related Instruction (RI), On-the-Job Training (OJT), books, tools, indirect costs for Group Program Sponsors or their Lead Applicant, and direct costs associated with operating the program.

Please note that O*NET codes under the job family Construction (47) are restricted under this AEG RFA unless the trade is to be used for the upkeep and maintenance of a facility owned by the business entity employing the apprentice.  A list of those occupations can be found online: https://www.onetonline.org/find/family?f=47.
