Registered Apprenticeship Related Instruction Grant Opportunity
As part of its program to expand Registered Apprenticeship in our state, funded under the ApprenticeshipUSA Expansion grants, the Maryland Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation has made funds available to support a portion of the costs of Related Instruction for existing sponsors of Registered Apprenticeship that have been inactive for five or more years but that now wish to reactivate their programs with new apprentice(s). These funds may also be accessed by Registered Apprenticeship Sponsors with Joint or Non-Joint Programs who have Signatory Contractors or Participating Contractors who either have not participated in five or more years OR are new to Registered Apprenticeship and wish to participate with your program.
Funds will be awarded to applicants in an amount up to $3,000 per new Registered Apprentice to help support a portion of the costs of Related Instruction associated with a sponsor’s Registered Apprenticeship program. Funds are available on a first come, first served basis and only can be used to fund the actual costs of Related Instruction.
