TWC invites qualifying educational institutions to apply for funding to support training programs

AUSTIN ⎯ The Texas Workforce Commission (TWC) has published a Request for Applications (RFA) for the Jobs and Education for Texans (JET) grant program for public junior, state, and technical colleges. The JET program was allocated approximately $7.5 million to provide grants to these applicants in FY 2022. Eligible institutions are invited to apply for grant funding to defray the start-up costs associated with developing career and technical education programs.

The JET program also supports employers by preparing students for careers in occupations that are identified by local businesses as being in high-demand.
