“Labor and Industry is committed to serving the Commonwealth’s workforce by creating greater opportunities and pathways to success for more Pennsylvanians in our apprenticeship programs,” L&I Acting Secretary Nancy Walker said. “Pennsylvania’s economic future depends on a well-educated and highly-trained workforce. These grants will open the doors of opportunity to more Pennsylvanians and grow our economy – a key priority of Governor Shapiro’s budget proposal.”
