This bill includes ongoing General Fund appropriations totaling $400,000 per year beginning in fiscal year 2022-23 to the Employment Services Activity program within the Department of Labor to support apprenticeship programs. Of that amount, $200,000 is provided to increase support for apprenticeship training reimbursement for registered apprenticeships with the Maine Apprenticeship Program and $200,000 is provided for educational programs that include both industry-based and job-related classroom instruction designed to prepare individuals to succeed in a registered apprenticeship program.
