AUSTIN -- Gov. Greg Abbott Thursday announced 11 Jobs and Education for Texans (JET) grants totaling more than $2.7 million to 11 schools in Northeast Texas to support career and technical education training programs.

Presented by the Texas Workforce Commission, these grants will help schools purchase and install equipment to initially train more than 1,340 students for high-demand occupations in healthcare, automotive services, welding, engineering, construction management, culinary arts, public relations, and more.

“Texas’ continued investment in our skilled, young, diverse, and growing workforce is crucial to remain the Best State for Business,” Abbott said. “These grants will help provide the tools and equipment Texas students need to develop valuable skills so they can flourish in high-demand industries.”
