CTE Arizona Industry Credentials Incentive Program (Arizona)
B - Readily funds technology as part of an award
Arizona Department of Education (ADE)
The Arizona Department of Education – Career and Technical Education unit prepares a distribution of funds for the Arizona Industry Credential Incentive Program based on number of qualifying credentials earned in eligible programs. In cooperation with the Arizona Commerce Authority and the Arizona Office of Economic Opportunity, specific industries have been identified for the incentive program based on an analysis of in-demand employment sectors and specific vocations that business and industry identify as having labor shortages. Participating public schools must have current ADE-CTE approved career and technical education programs that offer students the opportunity to earn credentials (i.e. certificates or licenses) in select, high-demand industries. The overall grant objectives:
- Provide leadership by initiating and advancing improvements to public education.
- Offer support to public schools and providers for exemplary performance.
History of Funding
None is available.
Qualifying entities are eligible to receive up to $1000 per credential earned by a graduating student in a high-demand industry. The ADE/CTE uses the following rules when determining incentive awards:
- Each student that earns a qualifying credential may generate no more than $1000 of incentive funding payment to the school(s).
- If a student earns a qualifying credential through their attendance at a single entity, the entity will receive the full $1000 incentive payment.
- If a student earns more than one qualifying credential (non-duplicative) through their attendance at more than one entity, the funds will be prorated equally for each credential earned.
- If a student earns a credential after they graduate (any time from graduation through September 30 of that year), the entity that administered the last approved course in the program will earn credit for the post-graduation credential. Awards will still be prorated equally if credentials are earned at more than one entity.
- If the number of qualifying students exceeds the available funding to meet the $1000 threshold, all qualifying entries will be prorated to match the available funding.
Eligible applicants include school districts, charter schools and other.
Application opens on August 2, 2022 and is to be submitted by September 30, 2023.
Awards vary from $1,000-$5,000,000.
