Career & Technical Education Innovation

Governor Wolf’s 2015-16 Budget includes several initiatives to reimagine the commonwealth’s career and technical education system by creating cross-sector partnerships among business, industry and education.

Over the next decade, Pennsylvania will seek to make a college degree or high-value industry-recognized certification available to at least 650,000 additional commonwealth residents.  Three new competitive grant programs in the Governor’s Budget support this goal and begin a multi-year strategy to transform and modernize career and technical education:

  • Career and Technology Education Innovation Grants: $15 million
  • Career and Technical Education Equipment Grants: $5 million
  • Career Counseling Grants: $8 million
