Purpose of Grant

The New York State Pathways in Technology Early College High School (NYS P-TECH) program will prepare thousands of New York students for high-skills jobs of the future in technology, manufacturing, healthcare and finance. The model incorporates a six-year program that combines high school, college and career training and will be targeted to at-risk, disadvantaged students.
Project Period September 1, 2013 through June 30, 2020


The project seeks to fund at least 10 regional partnerships, one in each economic development region of the State. Each partnership will include K-12, higher education and business partners.

Fiscal Agent/ Applicant

A New York State public school district must serve as the fiscal agent/applicant for each application.

Amount of Funding

$28.0 million in funding to be allocated over the seven year grant period. We anticipate that the average annual grant amount per partnership will be approximately $400,000, depending on program enrollment and other costs. Applicants can determine the annual allocations of awarded funds throughout the period of the grant as they deem appropriate.


Subcontracting will be limited to fifteen percent (15%) of the annual budget. Subcontracting is defined as non-employee direct personal services and related incidental expenses, including travel; it does not include service contracts between members of the partnership. Bidders are required to comply with NYSED’s Minority and Women-Owned Business Enterprises (M/WBE) participation goals as described in the RFP. Compliance methods are discussed in detail in the Minority/Women-Owned Business Enterprise (M/WBE) Participation Goals section.
