DescriptionThe Agency’s Employment and Training Administration is seeking applications for the American Apprenticeship Initiative. Grants provide a catalyst in supporting a uniquely American apprenticeship system that meets the particular economic, industry, and workforce needs in the U.S. American apprenticeships are innovative, work-based learning and postsecondary earn-and-learn models. The Initiative’s grants are financed by a user fee paid by employers to hire foreign workers into the U.S. under the H-1B nonimmigrant visa program. Grants funded by this initiative will support dynamic and sustainable public-private partnerships that support the expansion of quality and innovative Foreign Labor Certification Data Centers and industries, particularly those for which employers are using the H-1B visas to hire foreign workers. Grants also seek to create career pathways that encompass American apprenticeships and align with other postsecondary offerings. Also of interest are programs that use strategies to significantly increase apprenticeship opportunities for job seekers and workers, particularly women and other underrepresented populations. Additional information can be found on the Web site.
