Md. gets $2M grant to support new apprenticeship programs

The U.S. Department of Labor has given a $2 million grant to the Maryland Department of Labor for registered apprenticeship programming in the state.

The money will be used to provide additional staffing and outreach to businesses interested in making new apprenticeship opportunities, and will also let the state launch a program targeted at increasing health care industry apprenticeship opportunities for skilled immigrants, according to the state labor department.

Maryland has 9,258 apprenticeships as of Monday, and has a goal of expanding to 9,500 by the end of this year, state Labor Secretary Kelly M. Schulz said in a statement.

Information about apprenticeship opportunities in Maryland is available at http://www.dllr.maryland.gov/employment/appr/.
