Sen. Yaw Announces Lycoming, Susquehanna CTC Competitive Grants

HARRISBURG – The Pennsylvania Department of Education today awarded two competitive state grants to the Lycoming Career and Technology Center in Hughesville and the Susquehanna Career and Technology Center in Springville, according to state Sen. Gene Yaw (R-23).

The Lycoming CTC has been awarded $22,428 and the Susquehanna CTC has been awarded $16,149. The two grants are part of $1.2 million awarded to 32 Career and Technical Centers (CTC) and Area Vocational-Technical Education Schools across the state for the purchase of new equipment aligned to training students in high-demand occupations.

“I am excited about the opportunities these grants will provide for our area students,” Sen. Yaw said.  “As technology changes, we need to ensure they are learning using the most current, state-of-the-art equipment.  These grants will enable the CTC’s to provide that.”

The maximum grant allowed under the program is $50,000, and each grant must be matched dollar-for-dollar from a local source, which could include local school funds or contributions from business and industry partners.
