Nonprofit organizations, educational institutions and tribal organizations can apply though Jan. 6 for up to $6 million each to train current and former nurses to become nursing educators, and frontline health care workers to advance to nursing careers, the Department of Labor announced this week. The grants emphasize training people from historically marginalized and underrepresented populations to advance employment equity in underserved communities and improve workforce diversity. In addition, applicants must propose training program models that attract workers, unions, worker organizations and employers while building partnerships with community-based organizations and training institutions, the agency said.
