Texas Education and Training Voucher (ETV) Program

Mission

The Education and Training Voucher (ETV) Program allows Texas to help youth make a smoother transition to self-sufficiency and independence by providing funding that will help youth receive education, training and services not covered by another funding source.

About ETV
