Career Pathways

Through the Arkansas Career Pathways Initiative (CPI), the state has sought to coordinate publicly funded education with social services & workforce and economic development programs to produce a better-trained workforce and promote economic growth. "Career pathways" is the term for a series of connected education and training programs and support services that enable individuals to secure employment within a specific industry or occupational sector and to advance over time to successively higher level of education and employment in that sector. Each step on a career pathway is designed explicitly to prepare workers and students for the next level of employment and education.

Program/Student Eligibility

Program/Student eligibility is determined via the following two income categories:

• Parent(s) with dependent child(ren), under the age of 21 living in the household,  whose income is below 250% of the federal poverty limit

Income sources used as evidence for verification:

• Latest federal tax return (1040)
• Pay slips or Check Stubs (Household)

The following table will be used to compare the household income for eligibility verification:
