There are two grants supporting apprenticeships from the Department of Labor. The first grant supports women in apprenticeable occupations and nontraditional occupations by providing technical assistance to employers and labor unions. The second grant supports sector-based approaches to expanding efforts to develop and implement apprenticeships on a national scale in key industry sectors. To finish, HRSA announces another one of its Service Area Competitions. These grants help organizations provide primary health care services to the Nation’s medically undeserved populations.
