Texas Workforce Commission awards 25 Career Training Grants - Including 2 in Northeast Texas

The Texas Workforce Commission (TWC) has awarded 25 grants totaling $4,986,000 to public community and technical colleges and independent school districts for programs that focus on supporting new, emerging industries or high-demand occupations through the Jobs and Education for Texans (JET) grant program.

Qualifying educational institutions were awarded a grant for the development of programs or courses leading to a license, certificate or post-secondary degree. The JET grant program focuses on projects that target high-demand jobs in new or emerging industries.

The JET program provides funding for equipment to eligible educational institutions for the purpose of developing career and technical education courses and may include courses offering dual-credit and technical education programs. The equipment must be used to train students for jobs in high-demand occupations.

Both Texarkana College and Linden-Kildare CISD were awarded JET grants. These grants will be used to expand training opportunities for local students and workers.
