Request a Grant Writer

Grants ranging between $30,000 to $80,000 to Massachusetts State and county correctional facilities to improve their facility-based career and technical education programs. Funding is intended for professional development opportunities that enhance the abilities of program instructors.

Proposed programs of study must offer a sequence of at least two courses that provide adult and/or youth offenders with coherent and rigorous educational activities that develop the academic and technical knowledge and skills required to pursue further education and/or employment in current or emerging professions, and result in an industry-recognized credential or certificate.

The priority is to support the establishment or substantial improvement of career and technical education programs that prepare returning citizens to succeed in CORI-neutral, in-demand, career pathways with a sustainable living wage. Priority will be given to STEM career pathways such as automotive, building trades, informatiotechnology, and manufacturing.
