The ERAP project will serve men and women in Indiana with varying skill levels.

INDIANAPOLIS - Ivy Tech Community College recently received $4,736,976 in grant funding through the U.S. Department of Labor's Apprenticeship Building America program for its Expanding Registered Apprenticeship Programs (ERAP) project.  

The ERAP project establishes a statewide apprenticeship hub to promote apprenticeship as a viable, postsecondary education-to-career option and expand employer use of apprenticeship as a recruitment, training, and retention strategy. The project will support registered apprenticeship program development and expansion in industries and occupations in the critical supply chain for electric vehicle manufacturing and adoption, including public/home charging stations and line improvements. It will also support transportation infrastructure improvements, such as vertical and horizontal construction, planned within the state.

The ERAP project will serve men and women in Indiana with varying skill levels, including those with high school diplomas, those enrolled in GED programs with little to no industry experience, those wanting to increase their skills or lack certification, and those who are unemployed or are considered underrepresented populations.  

“The Expanding Registered Apprenticeship Programs project offers Hoosiers across our state with a clear pathway to a high-wage, high demand job,” said Dr. Sue Ellspermann, President of Ivy Tech. “As Indiana’s workforce engine, we look forward to leveraging the proven apprentice model across a wide range of occupations supporting more Indiana employers and improving Hoosier prosperity.”

The Apprenticeship Building America grant program is designed to expand and modernize Registered Apprenticeship by increasing the number of programs and apprentices, diversifying the industries that use Registered Apprenticeship and improving the access to and performance of Registered Apprenticeship Programs for underrepresented and underserved communities.
