Strategic Planning

To start the journey of becoming a Florida Postsecondary Comprehensive Transition Program, FCSUA requires the postsecondary institution to complete an initial strategic planning. The initial strategic plan is a key element in writing your FPCTP Application and Initial Grant.

Initial and continuing grants are available once an eligible institution has received FPCTP approval. Learn about the funding available.
