Upcoming ETA Funding Opportunities

Current Grant Funding Opportunities

  • Veterans Accelerated Learning for Licensed Occupations Project: FOA-ETA-18-07

    The Employment and Training Administration (ETA), announces the availability of approximately $4,500,000 in grant funds. We expect to fund approximately three cooperative agreements to partnerships to help increase and expedite attainment of state occupational licenses by veterans and transitioning servicemembers (TSM). Applicants may apply for up to $1.5 million of funding. The project aims to accomplish increasing and expediting attainment of state occupational licenses by veterans and TSMs by identifying gaps between military education and training in specific military occupations as compared to the education required for related licensed civilian occupations.

  • State Occupational Licensing Review and Reform: FOA-ETA-18-06

    The Employment and Training Administration (ETA), announces the availability of approximately $4.5 million in grant funds. Individual states can apply for between $100,000 and $450,000 for a three-year grant. An association of states can apply for up to $1,000,000 for a three-year grant. The Department intends to fund approximately 10-20 states, and may also fund one to two associations of states. The overarching goal of this grant program is to provide states with the means to review and streamline occupational licensing requirements in state-identified occupations and to promote portability of state licenses to and from other states, which is of particular concern to dislocated workers and military families.

  • Reentry Projects (RP): FOA-ETA-18-02

    The Employment and Training Administration (ETA), announces the availability of approximately $82.5 million in grant funds. The Department intends to award approximately 35 grants with a ceiling of $4.5 million to a combination of rural- and urban-serving areas. Eligible applicants include community- or faith-based organizations with IRS 501(c)(3) non-profit status, state or local governments or any Indian and Native American entity eligible for grants under section 166 of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA).

  • National Health Emergency (NHE) Dislocated Worker Demonstration Grants: TEGL-12-17

    ETA announces the availability of $21 million for National Health Emergency Dislocated Worker Demonstration Grants. The purpose of these grants is to enable eligible applicants to serve or retrain workers in communities impacted by the health and economic effects of widespread opioid use, addiction, and overdose. ETA anticipates awarding 7 to 10 demonstration projects, with expected funding amounts between $500,000 and $5 million each. No award will exceed $5 million. The final amount of each grant will be dependent on the number of applicants and the availability of Federal funds. Eligible applicants for NHE grants are limited to the same as those eligible for Disaster Recovery DWGs, under 20 C.F.R. 687.120:

    • State workforce agencies;
    • Outlying areas; and,
    • Indian tribal governments as defined by the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act (42 U.S.C. 5122(6)).
  • WIOA National Dislocated Worker Grants Pilot: TEGL-6-16

    ETA will accept nine DWG applications through this alternative method of application submission. Applications under this pilot will be accepted on a first come - first serve basis. Only applicants filing for a DWG from DOL, as authorized by Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) Section 170(b)(l)(A) may use this pilot. Applications for disasters, trade impacted workers, dislocated service members and emergency dislocations must be submitted using the current DWG electronic application system (e-System) accessible to States and Agencies. Upon receipt of nine fundable applications, ETA will close this submission method and will remove this TEGL from
