GAINS: Growing Apprenticeship in Nontraditional Sectors
Start & End Date of Grant: 
Applications Due by January 14, 2022
Purpose for which Funds will be Used:
The main goal of this Notice of Grant Opportunity is to promote equality of opportunity, upward mobility, and economic fairness. Due to the rise of globalization, international trade, advances in information technology, mechanical automation of production processes, and reductions in union membership over the past few decades, American workers have found themselves displaced by new technologies and in competition with overseas labor markets. Advances in technology have increased the use of mechanization in the production process and in professional spaces that are not often attributed to skill-biased technical change. These technological advances have increased demand for more technically advanced, high-skilled positions that require occupational training at the secondary, post-secondary, and adult education levels.
