Career and Technical Education Grants
This grant is for school districts and CTCs with eight (8) or more PDE-approved CTE programs. Funds are used for updating or purchasing new equipment used in the training of students.
Governor Wolf's 2015-16 Budget
includes several initiatives to reinvent the commonwealth's career and
technical education system by creating cross-sector partnerships among
business, industry and education.
Guidelines for all career and technical education
grants require the recipient to submit a Final Expenditure Report (FER) for all
program funds for which the recipient applied and was approved.
Changes in the total project amount or the ending
date require pre-approval by PDE because such changes are formal contract
amendments. Please contact your PDE program advisor if such changes are needed.
