Dear Colleagues –

We are pleased to inform you that our partners at the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) have announced a Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) for the Innovative Public Transportation Workforce Development Program (Ladders of Opportunity Initiative). The FTA has budgeted approximately $9 million for this solicitation, which will promote innovative nationally and regionally significant public transportation workforce development models and programs that invest in America's economic growth and help build ladders of opportunity into the middle class for American workers. Learn more.

Also, please note that we are updating our "flipped classroom" presentation entitled Perkins IV and Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act: Intersections and Opportunities. We are also moving our date to hold a conference call with state CTE directors and other key stakeholders to early December 2014 so we can provide the most up-to-date information. Please stay tuned to the PCRN for further details.

Director, Division of Academic and Technical Education
