What is the Perkins Grant

The Strengthening Career and Technical Education for the 21st Century Act (Perkins V) was signed into law on July 31, 2018. This bipartisan measure reauthorized the Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Act of 2006 (Perkins IV) and continues Comgress' commitment to providing nearly $1.4 billion annually for career and technical education (CTE) programs for our nation's youth and adults.

Perkins V represents an important opportunity to expand opportunities for every student to explore, choose, and follow career and technical education programs of study and career pathways to earn credentials of value.  As States and local communities embark on the development of new plans for CTE, the Department of Education hopes that States and local recipients "rethink CTE" and arrive at bold goals under the newly-authorized Perkins V statute.
