Grants and Scholarships

The Iowa Registered Apprenticeship Development Fund (84F) provides annual funding to support the growth of new Registered Apprenticeship programs, particularly programs that feature high-demand occupations.

These competitive grants are available annually for RA programs that create a new program with an eligible high-demand occupation or add an eligible high-demand occupation to their existing program.

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

Application Status (Currently Closed)

The application period for 84F funding is currently closed, but typically reopens at the beginning of the year to any Iowa-registered DOL/OA sponsor who has established a Registered Apprenticeship in a new high demand occupation in the previous training year (Jan-Dec).
