Registered Apprenticeship: Training for the 21st Century

Apprenticeships improve the skills of the American workforce and enhances the efficiency and productivity of American industries.


Apprenticeship Capacity Building Grants as well as Pre-Apprenticeship and Apprenticeship Grant have recently become available. To learn more about these opportunities and for application information, guidelines as well as award details, please visit our Grants page.

The PA Department of Community & Economic Development is also offering an apprenticeship grant. The Pre-Apprentice and Apprenticeship Grant Program is a statewide program which offers assistance to registered apprenticeship programs.
