TWC Accepting Grant Applications to Fund CTE Programs

The Texas Workforce Commission (TWC) has published a Request for Applications (RFA) for the Jobs and Education for Texans (JET) grant program. Texas public junior, state, and technical colleges, school districts, and open-enrollment charter schools may apply. The JET program has approximately $15 million to provide grants to these applicants in Fiscal Year 2024.

The JET program provides funding to defray equipment start-up costs associated with developing career and technical education (CTE) courses or programs leading to a license, certificate, or post-secondary degree and may include courses offering dual-credit and technical education programs. JET also supports employers by preparing students for careers in high-demand occupations identified by local businesses. 

The complete RFA packet, including requirements and submission documents, can be downloaded from the TWC Procurement Portal website. To prepare a submission, please log into the portal or create an account by clicking the “Log in/Register” button on the portal. Registration is free.
