Grants to Washington, DC nonprofit organizations and businesses to create and implement workforce development programs. Funding is intended to support training programs that benefit out-of-school youth, people with disabilities, women, and veterans. The goal of the grant program is to develop and conduct pre-apprenticeship programs in the approved industries: Elevator, Heavy Equipment Operator, Glazier, Ironworker, Roofer, or Formwork Carpentry.

The proposed pre-apprenticeship programs must include the following components: 

  1. Work-based job training; 
  2. Classroom-related instruction of at least four (4) hours per week that includes technical and theoretical subjects; 
  3. Industry-recognized credential attainment in one or more of the approved industries; and 
  4. Direct entry into a registered apprenticeship program in one of the approved industries. 

Upon successful completion of the proposed pre-apprenticeship program, participants will be registered with DOES OAIT as pre-apprentices and receive related instruction by the employer to gain industry-recognized credentials and on-the-job learning. DOES OAIT will provide monitoring, oversight, and technical assistance to support the pre-apprenticeship programs in achieving the required performance outcomes outlined in the RFA.
