Everett Community College is the fortunate recipient of a 4.88 million dollar Healthcare Education to Career Opportunities grant, commonly referred to as "The HECO Grant." The HECO grant provides funding to expand our courses and programs in the healthcare fields, such as Nursing, Phlebotomy, Medical Assistants and Nursing Assistants Certified.
Students enrolled in HECO supported classes have access to resources provided by the grant, such as a Navigator who can help students access funds to pay for books, tuition and general living expenses, and assistance with job placement once they successfully complete their training at Everett Community College.
Participation in HECO supported classes necessitates completing paperwork that is in addition to regular Everett Community College application and registration forms. We report on a quarterly basis how many students took our classes, how they progressed, and if they got jobs at the end of their training. Accurately reporting our students’ statistics and successes may enable us to receive additional funding in the future to continue to provide innovative growth classes. Students will complete up to four additional forms, which can be viewed by clicking on their titles below. Forms include:
- Participant Employment Attestation Form
- Equal Opportunity Statement
- HECO Program Release of Information Authorization
- HECO Program Form
Completed forms are confidential and will be kept on file at Everett Community College through the life of the grant, which ends June 2014 and our reporting is complete in September of 2014.
Enrollment in HECO courses is by permission only. After consulting your advisor to determine appropriate classes for your educational needs, contact Ronna DeLaVergne for access to HECO supported classes. We look forward to working with you and providing you with the best services to make your educational experiences as successful as possible!
This program is funded by a grant awarded under the President's Community-Based Job Training Grants, as implemented by the U.S. Department of Labor's Employment & Training Administration.
