Providing higher education for the Hoopa Valley

The Hoopa Career And Technical Education Program (HCATEP) has been continuously funded by the United States Department of Education for almost 30 years. The goal of this program is to increase employment and entrepreneurship in the private sector and tribal enterprise.

Funded through the Carl D. Perkins Vocational and Applied Technology Education Act (P.L. 101-932), this grant funded program works in partnership with College of the Redwoods to provide quality educational programs to community members so they may pursue high skilled, high waged employment in existing and emerging occupations.
