Jobs & Education for Texans (JET) Grant Program
B - Readily funds technology as part of an award
Texas Workforce Commission
The Jobs and Education for Texans (JET) grant program defrays 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, oversight of the state-funded program is now coordinated by the Texas Workforce Commission (TWC).

JET grants provide potential economic returns through:
- Supporting new, emerging industries or high-demand occupations
