Career Preparation and Launch Grant Program
The Career Preparation and Launch Grants are for districts to purchase and install career and technical education equipment that expands career-connected learning and work-integrated learning opportunities.
Districts must demonstrate that the request provides the necessary equipment to deliver career and technical education and applicants with a high percentage of students who are eligible and enrolled in the free and reduced-price meals program must be prioritized.
Recipients of this grant will have until the end of the biennium in which funds were provided to purchase and install equipment and finalize all reimbursements. OSPI does not expect districts to utilize this entire time period and anticipates districts will move quickly to finalize grant projects.
No single district may receive more than $150,000 of the appropriation.
