ACTION: Notice of Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA). AGENCY: Funding Opportunity Number: FOA– ETA–15–02. SUMMARY: The Employment and Training Administration (ETA), U.S. Department of Labor, announces the availability of approximately $100 million in grant funds authorized by Section 414(c) of the American Competitiveness and Workforce Improvement Act of 1998 (ACWIA), as amended (codified at 29 U.S.C. 2916a), for the American Apprenticeship Initiative. These grants are financed by a user fee paid by employers to hire foreign workers into the United States under the H–1B nonimmigrant visa program. This initiative is intended to provide a catalyst in supporting a uniquely American Apprenticeship system that meets our country’s particular economic, industry and workforce needs. American Apprenticeships (also referred to as Registered Apprenticeships) are innovative workbased learning and post-secondary earnand-learn models that meet national standards for registration with the U.S. Department of Labor (or federally recognized State Apprenticeship Agencies). Grants funded by this initiative will support dynamic and sustainable public-private partnerships that: • Support the expansion of quality and innovative American Apprenticeship programs into highgrowth occupation(s) and industry(s), particularly those for which employers are using H–1B visas to hire foreign workers, and the related activities necessary to support such programs (see Appendix A or visit the Foreign Labor Certification Data Center); • Create career pathways that encompass American Apprenticeship and align with other post-secondary educational offerings; • Use strategies to significantly increase apprenticeship opportunities for job seekers and workers (particularly for women and other underrepresented populations in apprenticeship, including young men and women of E:\FR\FM\19DEN1.SGM 19DEN1
