With the addition of the ABA Grant and the reorganization and growth of our team ApprenticeshipNH will be able to develop and expand pre-apprenticeships and Registered Apprenticeship Programs across New Hampshire, provide resources, technical assistance, and support to both employers and their apprentices while increasing the diversity of our state’s workforce.

The ABA Grant provides new opportunities in each of the four years of the grant for employers or industry organizations/partnerships. Proposals can be submitted through a formal RFP process for contract awards up to $100,000 (annually) to expand the infrastructure of Registered Apprenticeship across the New Hampshire.

ApprenticeshipNH can build Pre-Apprenticeship and Registered Apprenticeship Programs across a spectrum of sectors and occupations, including the state-identified in-demand industries: construction, education/childcare, healthcare, hospitality, manufacturing, technology and transportation/logistics.
