Pasco-Hernando State College was granted $1,630,000 in funding through the Florida Workforce Development Capitalization Incentive Grant (CAP Grant).

These funds come from the more than $35 million announced by Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis which are allocated to Florida school districts and state colleges for creation or expansion of semiconductor-related instructional programs for students. 

The grant will be used to purchase equipment for the PHSC manufacturing lab currently being constructed at the Wilton Simpson Technical College and to update PHSC’s welding lab with a state-of-the-art filtration system.

The Workforce Development Capitalization Incentive Program was created to provide grants to school districts and Florida College System institutions to fund some or all of the costs associated with the creation or expansion of career and technical education workforce development programs that lead to industry certifications included on the CAPE Industry Certification Funding List.  

PHSC currently offers a wide array of Workforce and Career and Technical Education programs including information technology, welding, digital media and many more. For more information visit:
