Grants of up to $15,000 to Massachusetts school districts, community colleges, educational collaboratives, and school consortia for the planning and implementation of technical education and career development programs designed for students in secondary and post-secondary school. Priority will be given to applicants that serve Gateway Cities and to programs that serve traditionally underserved populations.
The purpose of this competitive Career and Technical Education (CTE) Partnership Grant is to support regional and local partnerships to expand existing and/or develop new CTE programs and initiatives that increase student access to CTE opportunities, primarily through more effective use and integration of existing capacity and resources. Services provided are to supplement currently funded local, state, and federal programs.
Priority will be given to applicants that:
Grant funds must be used to plan or implement programs/activities/initiatives that will increase student seats and student access to CTE pathways/programs, particularly for underserved populations and students residing in Gateway Cities where the regional vocational technical high school serving that Gateway City is oversubscribed. All implementation activities must be appropriate and consistent with all applicable state and federal requirements.
