Purpose:
Grants awarded with WANTO funds must focus on providing TA to improve 
RAPs placement and retention of women (including women of color and 
women with disabilities) into nontraditional occupations (NTOs). In addition 
grantees should collaborate with local workforce investment boards and other 
entities that will provide supportive services needed to assist women to 
successfully enter and complete RAPs. Strategies commonly used by former 
WANTO grantees include pre-apprenticeship, apprenticeship preparation, or 
other bridge type programs that aim to prepare potential participants for the 
apprenticeship programs to meet the entry requirements for Registered 
Apprenticeship.
