CTE Awareness Initiative Grant

The Indiana Works Councils awarded $65,000 Career and Technical Education (CTE) Awareness grants to ten Regional Works Councils to bolster awareness of local career and technical education efforts. The purpose of this grant application is to provide each council with the opportunity to fund a CTE Awareness project as well as a secondary project; both must address issues that each council uncovered in its initial evaluation of CTE opportunities within its respective region.
