Women in Apprenticeship and Nontraditional Occupations (WANTO)

The U. S. Department of Labor, Employment and Training Administration (ETA), announces the availability of approximately $1,800,000 in grant funds authorized under the WANTO Act of 1992 to award six consortia made up of a community-based organization (CBO), a Local Workforce Investment Area (LWIA) established


under the Workforce Investment Act and a registered apprenticeship program (RAP) sponsor.

Each consortium will conduct innovative projects to improve outreach, recruitment, hiring, training, employment, and retention of women in apprenticeships in the nontraditional occupations.

Each consortium must consist of a minimum of three components:
1) a CBO (which may be a faith-based organization) that has demonstrated experience in providing women with job-training services; 2) a LWIA (which includes a representative of the local government responsible for administering workforce programs under WIA or Workforce Investment Board); and (3) a RAP sponsor (which can be an individual employer, association of employers, or an apprenticeship committee which includes joint and non-joint committees designated by the sponsor to administer and operate an apprenticeship program and in whose name the apprenticeship program is registered or approved).

It is anticipated that awards will be in the amount of up to $300,000 over the two-year grant period.

Additional Information of Eligibility:
Only CBO, LWIA and RAP consortia, may apply for and receive a grant award.

Within each eligible CBO, LWIA and RAP consortium, the official applicant must be the CBO, as defined in Section IX.

The CBO has the fiscal and administrative responsibility for the grant.

The LWIA must agree to co-enroll the participants.

ETA will verify that RAP sponsors are registered with ETA or an ETA-recognized State Apprenticeship Agency.

While a CBO, LWIA and a RAP are required members of the consortium, DOL ETA encourages applicants to include additional consortium members which can provide expertise or services to enhance the consortiumÂ’s ability to meet the goals of this SGA.

For example, other CBOs or educational institutions may be enlisted to provide supportive services to program participants.
