RFI Apprenticeship and Pre-apprenticeship Program Capacity Building. Comments due 8/18.

Opportunity Title:

RFI Apprenticeship and Pre-apprenticeship Program Capacity Building



Opportunity Number:

RFI 5488



Description:

The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) has launched a Request for Information (RFI) to solicit stakeholder input on a preliminary outline for a new Program Opportunity Notice (PON) for clean energy apprenticeship and pre-apprenticeship training. Through the proposed funding opportunity, and in working with union and registered pre-apprenticeship programs across the State, NYSERDA seeks to grow a diverse, equitable, and inclusive pipeline of skilled talent for the clean energy labor market.


Projects funded through the PON are intended to create and/or expand the capacity of Direct Entry Pre-apprenticeship and Registered Apprenticeship programs as a pathway to family-supporting, living-wage jobs. Eligible initiatives must include clean energy technical training (developing new or expanding existing clean energy training capacity) and hands-on experience for pre-apprentices, apprentices, and/or journey workers, ensuring they have the skills and qualifications required to meet the demands of a clean energy economy. Projects that include an education outreach plan to promote clean energy careers and pathways to pre-apprenticeships and apprenticeships to K-12 schools and/or technical high schools will be eligible for additional funds. A minimum of 50% of training participants must be from Disadvantaged Communities (DACs) or Priority Populations (PPs). Projects that include a K-12 outreach plan must further ensure that at least 50% of participating schools are located in a DAC or serve students from DACs or PPs.
