This Funding Opportunity Announcement solicits applications for Round 2 of the Apprenticeship Building America (ABA2) grant program. The Department will award grants to continue to expand, diversify, and strengthen the Registered Apprenticeship system through support for public and private partnerships designed to serve a range of industries and individuals and promote Registered Apprenticeship Programs (RAPs) as a workforce development solution that translates training into good jobs. ABA2 provides funding for three categories of grants: (1) Ensuring Equitable RAP Pathways and Partnerships Through Pre-apprenticeship Leading to RAP Enrollment, (2) Creation of Education System-aligned Pre-apprenticeship and RAPs, and (3) Registered Apprenticeship Hubs. This approach ensures that funding supports the Administration’s goals to modernize and strengthen the National Apprenticeship System.
