In Fall 2016, the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) Employment and Training Administration (ETA) awarded 36 states and 1 territory a combined $50.5 million dollars in SAE grants to engage industry and workforce intermediaries, employers, and other partners to expand apprenticeship to underserved populations, expand apprenticeship into new occupations and industry sectors, and integrate apprenticeship as a talent solution into their education, workforce, and economic development systems.
This SAE effort has resulted in new apprenticeships in both traditional and non-traditional industries, including healthcare, building trades, cybersecurity, business services, advanced manufacturing, and information technology – meeting companies’ talent needs and offering more pathways to in-demand, middle class jobs to more Americans. On this page, you’ll find links to specific tools and resources that have been developed to advance the goals of the SAE grants.
