Innovations in Creating Access To Careers in Healthcare

Important Update on the Future of I-CATCH

Because of a lack of grant funding, the I-CATCH program is unfortunately coming to an end on September 29, 2021.

We are currently only accepting applications for the Home Care Aide program, and will stop enrolling participants entirely effective July 15.

If you are a current I-CATCH participant: The grant will not provide tuition for Fall Quarter or student support after September 29. You may still continue your education after September 29, and we will assist you in getting connected with the many student support services and funding sources available at your college.
