Alpha has amassed a $2.5 million grant endowment program provided by the federal government’s Workforce Innovation Opportunity Act. Under this act, Alpha is partnering with the United States Department of Labor as well as state-based Labor Departments.
For 2023, we are committed to focusing on the following states: New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin, Georgia, Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee.
We anticipate 627 students in these states qualifying for workforce development-based training grants. These grants are designed to help eligible recipients build new skills that will increase their competitive ability to land a career in the artificial intelligence-robotics-industrial drone sector.
Our new program, the Commercial Drone Qualification and Internship Program is the program that will help students meet the objectives of the Workforce Innovation Opportunity Act.
