Grants Available to Help Employers Develop Apprenticeships
Tuesday, February 13, 2018
Employers are invited to apply for the Minnesota Apprenticeship Initiative (MAI) grant to help them create or expand registered apprenticeship programs in advanced manufacturing, agriculture, health care, information technology and transportation.
Approved employers will receive funds to offset their costs related to program development, related instruction and supplies. Employers can receive up to $5,000 for each registered apprentice.
"Apprenticeship is the gold standard to develop skilled employees," said Ken Peterson, commissioner, Department of Labor and Industry (DLI). "The apprenticeship model allows employers to build their business and grow a stronger workforce as they address the challenges of worker skills gaps, growing retirements and talent retention."
