The Oklahoma Office of Workforce Development (OOWD) is offering employers and industry partners an apprenticeship incentive grant opportunity to encourage growth of new apprenticeship programs across the state. Apprenticeships are a way for individuals and employers to explore talent opportunities and train skilled workers.
Grant funds may be used for planning and program start-up costs for organizations creating a new apprenticeship program. Ten grants will be available with awards ranging from $10,000 to $15,000, depending on the type of applicant. OOWD is accepting grant applications through June 1, 2019. Grant award winners will be announced at the 2019 Oklahoma Work-Based Learning Summit on June 17.
