Fiscal Year 2017 

The New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development (LWD) is proud to announce a Notice of Grant Opportunity (NGO) for NJBUILD-Camden for Fiscal Year 2017. 

The mission of the NJBUILD Camden program is to promote outreach and pre-apprenticeship training in the construction trades industry for female and minority Camden City residents to prepare them for entry in a union apprenticeship or employment in a construction-related job. 

This targeted, competitive opportunity is designed to provide grants for both construction trades training to women and minorities and placement services to participants in occupations as outlined in this NGO. Placement and training is targeted to Camden City. All training providers must be on the State’s Eligible Training Provider List (ETPL). The following organizations are eligible to apply as the lead agency:

  1. County or municipal governments;
  2. Public training providers or trade schools;
  3. Community-based organizations;
  4. Labor organizations;
  5. Employers and/or contractors;
  6. Public vocational schools;
  7. Institutions of higher education;
  8. Public or private, non-profit agencies; or
  9. Trade organizations which represent a particular trade, group of trades, contractors or employers.


PLEASE NOTE: If a labor organization or employer/contractor is not the lead agency, the applicant is required to partner with at least one of these entities to ensure a pathway for placement.
