The Women in Apprenticeship and Nontraditional Occupations (WANTO) grant helps to expand pathways for women to enter and lead in all industries.
Organizations receiving funds will provide one or more of the following types of technical assistance:
- Developing pre-apprenticeship or nontraditional skills training programs to prepare women for those careers;
- Providing ongoing orientations for employers, unions, and workers on creating a successful environment for women to succeed in those careers; and
- Setting up support groups, facilitating networks, or providing support services for women to improve their retention.
