Apprenticeship Connecticut Initiative
Connecticut Public Act 18-178, now codified at Conn.
Gen. Stat. 31-11rr, established the Apprenticeship
Connecticut Initiative (ACI) to develop workforce
pipeline programs to train qualified entry-level
workers for job placement with manufacturers and
employers in other industry sectors in the state
that are experiencing sustained workforce shortages.
CGS 31-11rr further required the Labor Commissioner to
issue a request for qualification in order to solicit
proposals from regional industry partnerships for a
workforce pipeline program to serve the workforce needs
of manufacturers and other employers in the region. The
Commissioner, at his discretion, has decided that the
comprehensive document best suited for this purpose
shall be a Request for Proposal (RFP) with the
qualification request requirement demonstrated within.
Please use the links below to access the RFP and
Labor Commissioner has the authority to determine which
proposals will be funded.
