Grants to New Jersey nonprofit organizations, CBOs, employers, trade and business groups, LEAs, vocational and high schools, institutions of higher education, and government agencies for workforce development programs. Applicants must submit an LOI prior to applying. Funding is intended to help individuals enter and succeed in Registered Apprenticeship programs. Applicants will be eligible to include stipend funding within their PACE program budget.
Eligible pre-apprenticeship programs have a documented partnership with at least one Registered Apprenticeship program sponsor, and together they expand the participant's career pathway opportunities with industry-based training coupled with classroom instruction. The program will drive economic development through skills and educational attainment and create pathways to better-paying careers and advanced credentials.
The mission of the PACE Program will be to better align secondary, post-secondary, adult education and occupational training to meet labor demands unique to New Jersey and develop career pathways that lead to economically sustainable wages. Pre-apprenticeship programs funded through the PACE Program will provide education and training that leads to one of the following outcomes:

Applications will be evaluated on the strength of the career pathway and partnerships proposed, the quality of programming proposed, and the lead applicant’s organizational capacity to implement the proposal. Greater weight will be given to applications that build career pathways for individuals who did not receive a high school diploma (or its recognized equivalent) or who did not complete a secondary school education in a home-school setting, through co-enrollment in adult basic skills education in concert with a pre-apprenticeship program as well as post-secondary education coursework that enables such individuals to be eligible to receive financial aid through the Ability to Benefit (ATB) provision of Title IV of the federal Higher Education Act (HEA).
