Funded by:

U.S. Department of Labor


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.
