Native Hawaiian Career and
Technical Education Program

Native Hawaiian Career and Technical Education Program (NHCTEP) provides roughly $2.6 million annually to community-based organizations primarily serving and representing Native Hawaiians to plan, conduct, and administer career and technical programs for Native Hawaiian students.

In FY 2013, 7 grants were awarded through a competitive application process for a 2-year period. On July 7, 2015, a Federal Register Notice of Final Waiver and Extension of the Project Period was published, which extended the current NHCTEP grants for an additional 2-year period through 2017.

A new competition is not scheduled at this time.
