The Employment Opportunities Grant Program (EOGP) was originally authorized in 2006 with the goal of increasing the number of historically underrepresented populations who enroll in and complete building trades apprenticeship programs and attain journey-level status in trade unions. It is administered by the DCEO and funded through the state general revenue fund.
FY 2014 Update: EOGP funding increase by nearly $1 million this year, to $1.25 million. In FY 2012 the program only received $300,000.
