“Apprenticeships equip workers with skills and experience to excel in today’s workforce, and this funding will give Louisiana workers the chance to build meaningful careers that enrich their communities.” 

WASHINGTON – Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.), a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, today announced $3,450,000 in federal grants from the Department of Labor to help the Louisiana Workforce Commission expand its Registered Apprenticeship Program. 

“Apprenticeships equip workers with skills and experience to excel in today’s workforce, and this funding will give Louisiana workers the chance to build meaningful careers that enrich their communities,” said Kennedy.

These grants are administered through a two-tiered funding system that encourages states to improve employer engagement and positive outcomes for their respective Registered Apprenticeship Programs. Louisiana is one of only 12 states receiving funds under the second funding tier.
