The New York State Department of Labor (NYSDOL) is making up to $4.2 million in funding available under the Apprenticeship Expansion Grant (AEG) Request for Applications (RFA). The purpose of this RFA is to expand Registered Apprenticeship (RA) training by increasing employment opportunities for approximately 800 new apprentices with a focus on underrepresented populations. These new apprentices will enter into trades in high-demand occupations, with a focus on the emerging fields of Advanced Manufacturing, Healthcare, and Information Technology, as well as other in-demand occupations. This funding will cover costs associated with the provision of training apprentices through RA, such as Related Instruction (RI), On-the-Job Training (OJT), books, and tools.
The 7th round of CFA funding serves as a tool to generate sustainable economic growth and employment opportunities across the state. NYSDOL is making approximately $5 million in Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) funding available through this Request for Proposals (RFP) to support these Workforce Development programs:
Up to $5,000,000 in federal WIOA funds is being made available for the provision of full-time, immersive occupational training in software engineering or web development. Specifically, the Program must be designed to incorporate input from industry on needed skills and learning milestones, serve individuals with little or no prior experience in software engineering or web development, and at the end of the Program, connect these individuals with software engineering or web development jobs (or related technology jobs approved by NYSDOL) in NYS.
Up to $700,000 is being made available under this Sector Partnership National Emergency Grant (SP-NEG) Request for Applications (RFA) for Incumbent Worker Training to promote partnerships between private sector businesses, Local Workforce Development Boards (LWDB), and education and training providers in priority industries as determined through the Regional Economic Development Council strategic planning process. This RFA will support and invest in businesses seeking to provide occupational skill based trainings to underemployed incumbent workers. These funds will assist participating businesses to advance their incumbent workers to more skilled positions leading to promotions, increased pay, or increased earnings through more work hours. Vacant positions, due to incumbent worker advancement, will then be back filled in accordance with a plan to engage and market to new, qualified participants in an associated dislocated worker program.
Up to $3 million in funding is being made available under this Sector Partnership National Emergency Grant (SP-NEG) Request for Applications (RFA) to promote partnerships between private sector businesses, Local Workforce Development Boards (LWDBs), and education and training providers in priority industries as determined through the Regional Economic Development Council strategic planning process. This RFA will support and invest in businesses seeking to empower dislocated workers to reconnect to the workforce through work-based training opportunities. Funds will support businesses that provide work-based training programs, such as on-the-job training (OJT), apprenticeships, or unpaid occupational skill based training to dislocated workers seeking employment in priority industries.
