  • Perkins Funding Increased in FY 14 Omnibus Bill

    Yesterday, the House and Senate appropriations committees released the final FY 2014 omnibus appropriations bill, which included a $53 million increase for Perkins! This funding increase will help to restore almost all of the harmful sequester cut for CTE! Sequestration had resulted in a 5.2 percent cut for federal CTE funding in FY 2013, impacting programs at high schools, tech centers, and community and technical colleges across the country. ACTE and the CTE community have been fighting for restoration of funding for the past year, and this is a huge step!
