Funding for Career and Technical Education Programs

New York City receives an annual allocation from the federal Vocational and Technical Education Act (VTEA), also known as the Perkins Act; DOE disburses these funds to CTE programs by competitive application. Progress toward program approval is required in order to retain eligibility for VTEA receipt. 

For eligibility requirements and guidelines for school year 2015-2016, schools can review these VTEA Application Guidelines 2015-2016 document
