U.S. Department of Labor Expansion Grant
In November 2016, we were awarded an ApprenticeshipUSA State Expansion Grant from the U.S. Department of Labor and Industry.
Four local partners were included in our APEX proposal to support efforts to expand apprenticeship opportunities in construction to women, people of color and veterans. The partners are:
The Building Minnesota Apprenticeship Program,
The Cement Masons, Plasterers and Shophands JATC, and
The Northern States Regional Council of Carpenters.
Our agency selected partners based upon program readiness and experience providing construction career readiness training to diverse populations.
