Career and Technical Institutions

The Tribally Controlled Postsecondary Career and Technical Institutions Program (TCPCTIP), provides grants to tribally controlled postsecondary career and technical institutions that do not receive assistance under the Tribally Controlled Colleges and Universities Assistance Act or the Navajo Community College Act.

The Tribally Controlled Postsecondary Career and Technical Institutions Program (TCPCTIP) Notice of Proposed Requirements (NPR) was published in the Federal Register on April 3, 2019. The TCPCTIP NPR invites the public to submit comments on program requirements and definitions which will be used during a FY 2019 TCPCTIP grant competition and may be used in later years. Interested entities may access the Federal Register TCPCTIP NPR through the link below:

Public comments must be received on or before May 3, 2019.
