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.

"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."

"Living in the Cities for four years made me appreciate the kind of lifestyle the rural area has to offer.  It is a wonderful place to raise a family, and people are not too busy to wave when passing by or just stop to visit.  I felt a strong desire to bring a form of quality of healthcare back to this area."
