5. Be willing to accept free grant aid between $500 - $2500 that you don’t have to pay back to help you graduate!

The Texas Reskilling Support Fund Grant Program stems from the allocation of $175 million provided to the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board from the Governor’s Emergency Educational Relief (GEER) Fund. GEER dollars, in turn, originate from the U.S. Department of Education’s administration of the Education Stabilization Fund in the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act of 2020. The CARES Act (HR 748/S 3548 of the 116th Congress) was signed into law on March 27, 2020.  The Project Complete Consortium has been provided with a portion of these funds to administer to qualifying students to support their degree and credential completion.
