This investment could scale and sustain healthcare pathways initiated under a variety of secondary/postsecondary CTE investments, including the Strong Workforce grants.

A connection with WIOA title I youth could build on-ramps for out of school youth to these pathways, and working with WIOA title IV vocational rehabilitation could provide access and success for secondary students with special needs.
