Incentive Funding

The Strong Workforce Program (SWP) helps to strengthen career and technical education (CTE) programs through regional collaboration and by

preparing more students for high-demand, high-wage jobs. SWP incentive funding provides rewards to colleges and regions that attain these goals.

Using a points system, colleges and regions will receive incentive funding for every CTE student who makes progress toward completion, earns a

certificate or degree, transfers to a four-year institution, secures employment, or attains positive earnings outcomes.

September 2017 is the deadline for colleges to submit MIS reports that will determine Round 2

SWP Incentive Funding for FY 17-18 to FY 20-21

Allocation of 2017-18 17% Incentive funds to Colleges/Regions will be announced in Dec 2017
