DEED/CTE Announces Two Competitive Grant Opportunities

Postsecondary Grant RFP

Perkins postsecondary grants will deliver high-quality CTE programs focusing on either direct instruction of secondary students in postsecondary coursework or professional development of CTE instructors in one of nine priority workforce areas identified by the Alaska Workforce Investment Board.  Grants will prioritize offering multiple entry and exit points, including stackable courses and/or credentials for maximum participation and effect.

Institutions of Higher Education (IHEs), Local Educational Authorities (LEAs) offering postsecondary instruction, technical schools offering postsecondary instruction, and consortia offering postsecondary instruction are eligible to apply.  Grants awards will be between $50,000 and $150,000 per year for up to three (3) years.  For more information, download the RFP here.  Proposals are due to DEED/CTE by 4pm on April 26, 2019.

Non-Traditional Occupations Grant RFP

Non-Traditional Occupations (NTO) grants improve gender equity and representation in targeted occupational fields important to the current and future state economy.  Grants are expected to increase equitable gender participation and facilitate smooth transitions from secondary education, through postsecondary training, and into the workforce.

LEAs and consortia of LEAs are eligible to apply.  Grants awards will be between $20,000 and $30,000 per year for up to three (3) years.  For more information, download the RFP here.  Proposals are due to DEED/CTE by 4pm on April 26, 2019.
