 Full RFA available at:

https://labor.ny.gov/workforcenypartners/fundingopps/apprenticeship-expansion-grant.pdf

 

The New York State Department of Labor (NYSDOL) is making up to $3.7 million in funding available under the Apprenticeship Expansion Grant (AEG-2) Request for Applications (RFA); $1.1 million remains as of 7/31/20.  The purpose of this RFA is to expand Registered Apprenticeship (RA) training by increasing employment opportunities for approximately 800 apprentices with a focus on underrepresented populations. These apprentices will enter into trades in high-demand occupations, with a focus on the emerging fields of Advanced Manufacturing, Healthcare, and Information Technology, as well as other in-demand occupations.  


This funding will cover costs associated with the provision of training apprentices through RA, such as Related Instruction (RI), On-the-Job Training (OJT), books, and tools.

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, such as plant maintenance trades. A list of those occupations can be found online: https://www.onetonline.org/find/family?f=47
