Quality Apprenticeships for New Investments

With the passage of recent legislation like the bipartisan infrastructure bill and the Inflation Reduction Act, the federal government is making significant investments into key sectors of the U.S. economy. From infrastructure to offshore wind, apprenticeships have an important role to play in creating good jobs and advancing the broader economic goals of these federal investments.

Hear from the U.S. Office of Apprenticeship and state workforce leaders about how they are supporting the development of apprenticeship programs that leverage and are aligned with these historic federal investments.
