RGV LEAD Participates in JET Grant Presentation

Vol. 2, Iss. 8 | April 2021

Jobs & Education for Texans (JET) Grant Program

Congratulations to all RGV LEAD partners, Julian Alvarez, Texas Workforce Commission, and former RGV LEAD Board member for presenting 11 local school districts with 2.6 million in Jobs & Education for Texans (JET) Grants. The JET program provides grants to buy and install equipment for career and technical education (CTE) courses. These courses must lead to a license, certificate or post-secondary degree in a high-demand occupation.

JET grants provide potential economic returns by supporting emerging industries or high-demand occupations and offering new or expanded dual credit career and technical educational opportunities in public high schools. Eligible grantees include public community, state, or technical colleges and independent school districts (ISD) that partnered with a public community, state, or technical college.
