From the U.S. Department of Labor:
The U.S. Department of Labor has announced $4.1 million in grants available to community organizations to recruit, mentor, train and retain more women in quality apprenticeship programs, and to help those women pursue successful careers in manufacturing, infrastructure, cybersecurity, healthcare and other industries.
“Apprenticeships provide a promising avenue for women to gain valuable skills while earning a living,” said U.S. Secretary of Labor Eugene Scalia. “The grants announced today will help women gain new skills to succeed in the changing economic environment created by coronavirus, while also providing important opportunities for women to work in occupations that traditionally have had fewer women workers.”
Special thanks to the National Association of Workforce Development Professionals (NAWDP) for sharing this funding opportunity.
