The Comptroller’s office will administer these dollars as the Every Chance Funds with three distinct components:
- Job Building Fund — provides grants to public community colleges and technical schools to help purchase equipment for high-demand career and technical programs.
- Career and Technical Scholarship Fund — provides grants to public community colleges and technical schools to distribute scholarships to students enrolled in career and technical education programs for high-demand occupations.
- Launchpad Fund — awards grants to support nonprofit organizations with programs that prepare low-income students for careers in high-demand occupations.
The JET Advisory Board, comprised of appointees from top Texas leaders, will review grant applications and make award recommendations to the Comptroller’s office.
