CTE Revitalization Grant 2023-25: Now Accepting Applications

The Request for Application (RFA) for the 2023-25 CTE Revitalization Grant is now available. Deadline for submission is November 6, 2023.

This is a competitive grant, open to any public school district, education service district, public school, public charter school--or combination--in Oregon.

The intent of the CTE Revitalization Grant is to strengthen existing CTE Programs of Study (POS) and create new CTE POS that will meet workforce needs in high-skill, high-wage, in-demand occupations; support achievement of the Oregon diploma; and address the needs of historically and currently marginalized youth, learners, and families, including civil rights protected classes.

Please refer to the 2023-25 CTE Revitalization Grant RFA for full details.

Feel free to share widely with your colleagues and networks.
