FY23 Program Funding Request (PFR) Process

Supplemental Budget Funding Process

At the request and direction of WACTC and in partnership with SBCTC leadership, the Workforce Education team has developed the following process for distributing new system resources to our colleges. This information is provided to provide an overview and introduction to this new and expedited approach. We acknowledge this new approach will generate questions and we are dedicated to providing guidance and support as we implement this new process.

A non-credit/continuing education/self-support credential, micro-pathway, or program may be eligible for this funding provided it meets the intent of the funding. The distinguishing characteristic is to fund programs that expand enrollment and system capacity, while preparing students for entry into credential-bearing high demand programs. Proposals must demonstrate a clearly articulated pathway.

Key elements of the funding approaches

  • Move resources to colleges as quickly as possible
  • Ease of administration, uniformity across funding streams
  • Resources made available for program growth/development/modification
  • SBCTC will utilize enrollment trend data (baseline) and related CIP codes in the review and awarding process.
  • Redistribution policy will be discussed and established after year two of funding, based on outcomes and college input.
  • Application webinars will be provided to support colleges in these processes.
