The Jobs and Education for Texans (JET) grant program was allocated $16 million for the FY20-21 biennium to provide grants to public community, state and technical colleges, and independent school districts to purchase and install equipment necessary for the development of career and technical education courses or program that lead to a license, certificate or post-secondary degree in a high-demand occupation. 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).
