B - Readily funds technology as part of an award
New York State Education Department (NYSED)
The purpose of the Federal Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Improvement Act (Perkins IV / CTEA) is to develop more fully the academic knowledge and technical and employability skills of secondary and postsecondary students who elect to enroll in career and technical education programs and programs of study, by—
- building on the efforts of States and localities to develop challenging academic and technical standards and to assist students in meeting such standards, including preparation for high skill, high wage, or in-demand occupations in current or emerging professions;
- promoting the development of services and activities that integrate rigorous and challenging academic and career and technical instruction, and that link secondary and postsecondary education for participating career and technical education students;
- increasing State and local flexibility in providing services and activities designed to develop, implement, and improve career and technical education;
- conducting and disseminating national research and disseminating information on best practices that improve career and technical education programs and programs of study, services, and activities;
- providing technical assistance that—promotes leadership, initial preparation, and professional development at the State and local levels; and improves the quality of career and technical education teachers, faculty, administrators and counselors;
- supporting partnerships among secondary schools, postsecondary institutions, baccalaureate degree granting institutions, area career and technical education schools, local workforce investment boards, business and industry and intermediaries;
- providing individuals with opportunities throughout their lifetimes to develop, in conjunction with other education and training programs, the knowledge and skills to keep the United States competitive; and
- increasing the employment opportunities for populations who are chronically unemployed or underemployed, including individuals with disabilities, individuals from economically disadvantaged families, out-of-workforce individuals, youth who are in, or have aged out of, the foster care system, and homeless individuals.
Eligible institutions must work cooperatively with approved One-Stop delivery systems; local providers of education, training, and services; and community-based organizations (CBOs) to offer integrated service systems to special populations, avoid duplication of services, and expand the range and accessibility of services. Uses of Funds in Perkins V are as follows:
- Provide career exploration and career development activities through an organized, systematic framework designed to aid students before enrolling and while participating in a CTE program, in making informed plans and decisions about future education and career opportunities and programs of study;
- Provide professional development for faculty, administrators, specialized instructional support personnel, career guidance and academic counselors, or paraprofessionals;
- Provide within CTE the skills necessary to pursue high-skill, high-wage or in-demand industry sectors or occupations;
- Support integration of academic skills into CTE programs and programs of study to support CTE participants at the postsecondary level in achieving academic skills;
- Plan and carry out elements that support the implementation of CTE programs and programs of study and that result in increasing student achievement on performance indicators;
- Develop and implement evaluations of the activities carried out with funds including evaluations necessary to complete the Comprehensive Local Needs Assessment and the local report.
Note: Applicants are not required to address all six Uses of Funds. However, funds can only be expended for the uses outlined above. For more information on the use of funds please refer to the 2023 guidelines http://www.nysed.gov/common/nysed/files/2023-perkins-grant-guidelines.pdf

They must offer or be in the process of developing CTE programs that meet the requirements for a Regents CTE Approved Program. Perkins funds are allocated by a statutory formula that is based upon the number of individuals ages five to seventeen in a school district, with greater weighting to those individuals who are below the poverty line (source is US Census data).
The Office of Postsecondary Access, Support, and Success of the State Education Department receives Perkins V federal funding for career and technical programs. These funds are allocated to the State's community colleges based on the number of economically disadvantaged career and technical education students enrolled in each institution.
