Key highlights on regulations, policies, and program funding for the transportation professional
The Department of Labor has announced $80 million for the Building Pathways to Infrastructure Jobs Grant, which funds workforce training in a broad set of occupations supporting infrastructure.
These include professional, scientific, and technical services occupations in construction, including civil engineering technicians, drafting, and construction management.
Grants can range from $500k to $5M. Applications are due July 7, 2023.
State/local transportation agencies are encouraged to apply to support training for their internal workforce, and are recommended to partner with a state workforce agency, workforce development board, community college, or community-based organization that has experience applying for DOL grants and who can help with recruitment and training.
"There can be no doubt that the transportation sector is the most critical sector of our economy."
— Robert Brady
