The Jobs and Education for Texans (JET) grant program allocates $10 million each biennium to defray start-up costs associated with the development of career and technical education programs to public community and technical colleges, and independent school districts. Formerly under the direction of the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts, legislation passed by the 84th Texas Legislature transferred oversight of the state-funded program to the Texas Workforce Commission (TWC). The advisory board assists TWC in the administration of these grants.
The JET Advisory Board will meet at least once each quarter, or as needed, to review received applications and recommend grant awards. The Board will be presided over by the Chair of TWC and will also include education and workforce stakeholders appointed by:
Appointees will serve two-year terms. The Chair of TWC will hold a statutory appointment.
