The State Board for Community and Technical Colleges (SBCTC) invites Washington state community and technical colleges to apply for the HEET funding. Colleges must develop proposals in collaboration with at least one healthcare employer and one labor partner to receive funding. 

The purpose of the HEET Grant is to:

  • Enhance access to college education for hospital workers.
  • Lead to increased capacity of the college system in nursing and other high demand health care fields.
  • Bring greater diversity to the health care workforce.
  • Build a stronger labor/management, healthcare industry and college partnerships to leverage public and private investment.
