Tools for Training


Educational Research Institute, a successful grant writing company located in Harlingen, is elated to announce its achievement in providing numerous school districts throughout the State of Texas with funding to cover startup costs for Career and Technical Education programs (CTE). Because many districts lack the equipment required to allow for the creation or expansion of CTE programs, ERI has provided the opportunity to secure funding through the Texas Workforce Commission’s Jobs and Education for Texans Grant (JET) and the Dual Credit Career  and Technical Education Grant.

Through these programs, the awarded districts have been able to purchase or replace equipment for their high-demand programs in order to help students earn industry-recognized licenses, credentials, and/or certifications.

From 2016 to 2018, ERI was able to secure 23 JET and Dual Credit grants for a combined total of over $4.6 million for the following clients’ CTE programs:

If your district has never applied for this type of funding or if your previous application was simply not strong enough to secure an award from TWC, please take full advantage of our services by contacting our office today at (956) 365-4100.
