The grant was conceived from the DOL’s previous Skills Partnership Grant. The department says the grant is now more inclusive and supportive of employer needs.
The grant will demonstrate long-term sustainability that the department says will result in a measurable outcome such as an industry-valued credential that furthers the trainee’s career pathway.
Applications from individual employers, employer organizations, labor organizations, community-based organizations, faith-based organizations and eligible industry-specific consortiums are being accepted. Individual employers may apply for a maximum $100,000, while industry-specific consortiums may apply for a maximum of $250,000.
