$500,000 of ApprenticeshipNH Partner Funding Now Available

By Charlotte Williams

ApprenticeshipNH has launched new application forms for ApprenticeshipNH Partner Funding opportunities totaling $500,000. There are three options available including $25,000 planning grants, and $50,000 for the development of pre-apprenticeship or Registered Apprenticeship programs and this funding opportunity will be continuous until all available funds are expended. Prospective partners can submit one, two or all three applications if they are able to meet the contract deliverables of each level.

These opportunities are available through federal funding to the Community College System of New Hampshire to improve statewide apprenticeship resources and networks. As part of this initiative, CCSNH stablished four Regional Apprenticeship Hubs that align with community college partner geographic locations across New Hampshire. The goal of the Regional Hubs is to support the needs of industry in the development and expansion of pre-apprenticeships and Registered Apprenticeship Programs (RAP’s) across a spectrum of sectors and occupations, including the state-identified in-demand industries: Healthcare, Technology, Manufacturing, Construction, Hospitality, Transportation/Logistics, and Education/Childcare. This apprenticeship Hub model is aligned with and supports state goals, objectives, and plans; all of which reference and support the expansion of RAPs as an immediate and critical solution to developing workforce talent. Through this four-year effort, CCSNH seeks to engage at least 50-100 employers and enroll 500-700 participants in RAPs, as well as develop 32 new pre-apprenticeship programs whilst expanding 60 existing pre-apprenticeships. Underscoring this work is the promotion of greater inclusion, equity, diversity, and access to these workforce solutions whereby at least 30 percent of participants will be from underserved populations.

Key drivers to the success of the Hub model are statewide partner organizations whose purpose is to expand the infrastructure of RAPs in New Hampshire and promote the development of RAPs and pre-apprenticeships across the state. Partners must have outreach strategies for underrepresented/underserved populations and be able to build RAP’s targeting specific populations. Your organization may be able to benefit from this funding.
