required by the AAI grants. These grants are designed to support 
grantees in providing education, training, and job placement assistance 
through Registered Apprenticeship programs in occupations and/or 
industries that have high-growth potential for which employers are 
using H-1B visas to hire foreign workers. ETA requires grantees to

other provisions of law, no person shall generally be subject to 
penalty for failing to comply with a collection of information that 
does not display a valid Control Number. See 5 CFR 1320.5(a) and 
1320.6.
