Texarkana College Receives $304,006 Jobs and Education for Texans (JET) Grant

The Texas Workforce Commission (TWC) has awarded Texarkana College a $304,006 Jobs and Education for Texans (JET) grant. The grant will help the college district purchase and install equipment to provide 170 students with training for careers in the nursing profession. The purchased equipment will continue to support the nursing program and future students enrolled with Texarkana College.


“This partnership with Texarkana College will focus on advanced technical training and education to prepare our future workforce and meet employers’ demands for skilled labor,” said TWC Commissioner Representing Employers Ruth R. Hughs. “We are pleased to present this grant which provides training equipment to create new opportunities in the medical profession for the Northeast Texas area.”


TWC recently awarded 25 grants totaling $4,986,000 to public community and technical colleges and independent school districts for programs that focus on supporting new, emerging industries or high-demand occupations through the JET grant program.


The JET program provides funding for equipment to eligible educational institutions for the purpose of developing career and technical education courses and may include courses offering dual-credit and technical education programs. Equipment funded through JET grants must be used to train students for jobs in high-demand occupations.
