Apprenticeship Expansion Grant
The Apprenticeship Expansion Grant will provide up to $1,179,000 in grants to existing and emerging apprenticeship programs across Indiana. Funds will be given to programs that engage industry and other partners to expand apprenticeships to new non-traditional sectors and new populations, identify ways to promote and advance greater inclusion and diversity in apprenticeships and/or create or expand pre-apprenticeship programs for both youth and adults.
Existing and emerging apprenticeship and pre-apprenticeship programs for sub-grant applicants should focus their work on:
- Engaging industry and other partners to expand the apprenticeship model of training to new non-traditional employment sectors and populations; and/or
- Development of innovative ways to incentivize employers to develop and offer apprenticeship programs; and/or
- Identifying ways to promote apprenticeships to underserved populations (e.g. women, minorities, graduating high school seniors) and advance greater inclusion and diversity in apprenticeships; and/or
- Creating or expanding pre-apprenticeship programs (for both high school aged youth and adults).
Eligible applicants are any education and workforce partners/organizations, not-for-profits, community based organizations and employers/companies. This list is not exhaustive and DWD welcomes all to apply.
