Governor Greg Abbott today announced 152 “Jobs and Education for Texans” grants totaling more than $54 million have been awarded by the Texas Workforce Commission to public community, state, and technical colleges, school districts, and open-enrollment charter schools across the state.

These grants will be used to purchase necessary equipment to establish or expand career and technical education programs that offer Texas students the opportunity to earn a license, certificate, or post-secondary degree in fields such as nursing, welding, automotive repair, and dentistry, Abbott said.
