Apprenticeship Funding for Employers



To grow a highly skilled workforce, the State University of New York (SUNY), in partnership with the New York State Department of Labor, coordinate activities to expand Registered Apprenticeship in New York with a focus on engaging small, medium, and large employers to secure paid apprenticeships in high-demand, competitive wage occupations. 


Focused Areas include: 

· Advanced Manufacturing  

· Healthcare 

· Information Technology, Cybersecurity, and Artificial Intelligence 

· Other (non-construction) 

WHY OFFER AN APPRENTICESHIP? 

Apprentices have a genuine interest in your industry and you may find a reduction in hiring costs by providing a streamlined channel to bring on new workers. Companies also report higher productivity, retention rates (less turnover), and substantial return on investment in a skilled workforce. Additional benefits include the Empire State Apprenticeship Tax Credit (ESATC) and the Apprenticeship Expansion Grant (AEG).
