CTE Revitalization Grant


The CTE Revitalization Grant program is a purposive concept designed to support student engagement and success, completion leading to career and college preparation, and a potential boost to local/regional economic development.

CTE Revitalization 2021-23

Join the Oregon Department of Education (ODE), Higher Education Coordinating Commission (HECC), Bureau of Labor and Industries (BOLI), and a growing number of forward thinkers, policy makers, employers, and other educators to revitalize CTE!

The intent of the CTE Revitalization Grant is to strengthen existing CTE Programs of Study and create new CTE Programs of Study that will meet workforce needs in high-skill, high-wage, and in-demand occupations; support achievement of the Oregon Diploma; and address the needs of historically and currently marginalized youth, students, and families, including civil rights protected classes.

Based on legislative intent, invitations will be based on the following criteria:

  2. Activities undertaken under this grant must be consistent with the establishment or expansion of a CTE program that:
  • ties to a local/regional business, labor, and industry;
  • maps to a high-wage/high-demand career area; and
  • involves a path to career and/or postsecondary education and training.
