Grants of up to $15,000 to Massachusetts school districts, school consortia, educational collaboratives, and community colleges for technical and career education programs for students in grades 7-14. Applicants must submit an LOI prior to applying. Priority will be given to applicants that serve Gateway Cities.

Grant funds must be used to support collaborative planning among local partners to develop an implementation plan for activities/initiatives that will increase student seats and student access to CTE pathways/programs, particularly for underserved populations. All planning activities must be appropriate and consistent with all applicable state and federal requirements.

Funds may be used for:

  • Stipends to support convening and planning.
  • Consultant and contract fees to provide planning-related professional development.
  • Other costs that are negotiated with the Department.

This Planning Grant is the first phase of a two-phase process that will result in Implementation (Phase 2) funding, contingent upon the availability of funds, for plans that will have the greatest impact on increasing access to CTE programs for students. Award of a Planning grant does not guarantee Implementation phase funding.
