H-1B TechHire Partnership Grants

United States Department of Labor, Employment and Training Administration


Agency: Federal

GrantWatch ID #165778

Grant Description

Grants to USA partnerships comprised of a public workforce agency, an education provider, and a business-related nonprofit to provide training for health care, technology, finance, and manufacturing workers in the USA on work visas. Special focus is on individuals 17 - 29 years of age facing barriers to training and employment and special populations including the disabled, those that do not speak English, and those with criminal records.

This grant program is designed to equip individuals with the skills they need through innovative approaches that can rapidly train workers for and connect them to well-paying, middle- and high-skilled, and high-growth jobs across a diversity of H-1B industries such as Information Technology (IT), healthcare, advanced manufacturing, financial services, and broadband. Projects funded by this grant program will help participants begin careers in H-1B occupations and industries which are in-demand and/or high growth in the area applicants are proposing to serve.

On a limited basis, this grant program will also enable applicants to work with companies on increasing the skills of existing workers in lower-skilled jobs to move into more highly skilled positions requiring technology-related skills. These grants will pilot and scale public-private partnerships among the workforce investment system, education and training providers, and business-related nonprofit organizations to address the following goals for the target populations. Grants will be awarded to the lead applicant, which will serve as the grantee and have overall fiscal and administrative responsibility for the grant.
