Illinois Works Bid Credit Program
Contractors or subcontractors that employ apprentices that have completed the Illinois Works Pre-Apprenticeship Program on State public works projects may be eligible to earn bid credits for future state-funded public works projects. The Illinois Works Bid Credit Program will encourage contractors and subcontractors to provide opportunities to historically underrepresented populations in the construction industry.
Further guidance on this program will be released after the launch of the Illinois Works Pre-Apprenticeship Program by mid-2021.
