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. 
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.
