Grants and Scholarships

The Iowa Apprenticeship Act (84E) provides annual funding to support training or ongoing costs within any active Iowa Registered Apprenticeship program. Funding available under this grant is based on the applicant’s proportionate share of the statewide total of qualified registered apprentices participating in a qualified registered apprenticeship program. 

A qualified apprenticeship program must be registered with the DOL/OA and the program must provide a minimum of 100 in-person contact hours to qualify for funding. 

Note: Previously, the Iowa Apprenticeship Act was known as 15B, but recent legislation modified its reference in the Iowa code. Materials are currently being updated.

Application Status (Currently Closed)

The application period for 84E funding is currently closed, but typically reopens at the beginning of the year to any Iowa-registered DOL/OA sponsor or lead sponsor for the previous training year.
