Money for JOBS!
Texas Comptroller Susan Combs announced another round of grants for 11
community colleges and technical institutes totaling $3 million, which will
be used to purchase equipment and train students to enter the workforce.
The grants are distributed through the Jobs and Education for Texans (JET)
program, which promotes career and technical training and has been
administered by the Comptroller’s office since 2009.
“There are critical jobs that need to be filled as soon as possible,” Combs
said. “These grants will help students move one step closer to employment in
fields that are very important to Texas’ diverse economy.”
Since 2009, community colleges and technical institutes have been awarded
$16 million to buy career training equipment.
The newest equipment grants go to MCC and other colleges. MCC gets money for
