In July 2020, the U.S. Department of Labor Employment and Training Administration awarded 42 States and U.S. territories over $81 million in grants to support activities focused on strengthening the structures supporting Registered Apprenticeship Programs (RAP). 

Through a two-tiered funding system, twelve States received additional funding and are expected to go above-and-beyond supporting their state’s basic Registered Apprenticeship structure.
