Related Technical Instruction and On-the Job Training Grants available

Dear apprenticeship sponsors and stakeholders,

As part of its ongoing Minnesota Registered Apprenticeship Expansion (MNRAE) efforts, Apprenticeship Minnesota at the Department of Labor and Industry announces the availability of $53,000 to support employers interested in forming a new registered apprenticeship program and support existing registered apprenticeship programs seeking to grow their current training programs.

The funding is to help off-set expenses for related technical training instruction, or on-the-job training that will successfully retain participants in registered apprenticeship programs. There are more than 11,500 apprentices actively training in great careers today.

Increase apprenticeship participation

Apprenticeship participation levels of Indigenous communities, people of color, people with disabilities, women, veterans and those who live in greater Minnesota continues to improve, but accounts for only a quarter of total active apprentices. We seek applications from Minnesota employers and registered apprenticeship sponsors that can inclusively serve these populations within their registered apprenticeship programs. Applicants may request up to $25,000, with priority given to groups who have not yet received funding from this U.S. Department of Labor grant.

Applications will be accepted on a continual basis through Aug. 31, 2022, or until all funds have been depleted. The grant period of performance will endure from the time of contract signing through Nov. 30, 2022, or until all obligations have been met, whichever comes first.
