This workforce product is a public-private partnership, supported in part by funding awards from the U.S. Department of Labor’s Employment and Training Administration.
Federal funds are awarded as a flat dollar amount of around $1.7 million annually for operational expenses and not a fixed percentage of Apprenti program expenditures. Apprenti’s largest expense is apprenticeship training, which is not substantially supported by federal funds. Pursuant to Section 511, P.L. 101-166, the federal share of the total program budget varies as follows, updated annually at the close of each project year:
- In 2017, federal funds of $2,069,710 accounted for 61% of the total program budget. This supplemented nongovernmental funds of $650,000 (19%) and state/local funds of $665,925 (20%).
- In 2018, federal funds of $1,687,484 accounted for 36% of the total program budget. This supplemented nongovernmental funds of $1,170,000 (25%) and state/local funds of $1,849,857 (39%).
