Hoeven Secures Treasury Approval of North Dakota's $68 Million CTE Centers Application

Senator Worked to Provide Certainty for Workforce Training Programs

WASHINGTON – Senator John Hoeven today announced that he has secured approval of North Dakota’s application for more than $68 million in funding for Career and Technical Education (CTE) Centers from the U.S. Department of the Treasury. Hoeven has been working with Treasury officials, including Assistant Secretary Jonathan Davidson, to move the application forward and provide certainty for the state’s CTE Center projects. In particular, the senator has been working to advance the state’s application to:

  • Help address the state’s workforce challenges.
  • Provide the opportunity for students to receive cost-effective education and training and pursue valuable, in-demand careers without taking on significant debt.

“Securing this award for North Dakota’s CTE Centers is an important win for the state. Today’s announcement means the short-term loan from the state can be promptly repaid and will enable construction to move forward,” said Hoeven. “We’ve been working with Treasury to advance this process and provide much-needed certainty for the development of these CTE Centers, which will help our state better meet its workforce needs while giving students’ more options to pursue cost-effective education and build a successful career.”

Specifically, the award supports the construction of 13 CTE Centers in North Dakota, including the:

  • Cass County Career & Technical Education Center in Fargo.
