15 States Eligible to Receive Additional CTE Funding

The U.S. Department of Labor and Department of Education announced today that 15 states are eligible to receive additional funding for exceeding performance measures in both their workforce investment system and adult education programs.

These “incentive grants” were established under the Workforce Investment Act to encourage states to meet performance targets, and may be used to improve the workforce and adult education system as well as CTE programs under the Perkins Act.

Qualifying states and their grant amounts are:

  • Arizona – $696,551
  • Arkansas – $674,924
  • Georgia – $717,658
  • Idaho – $667,885
  • Kentucky – $688,486
  • Louisiana – $683,255
  • Minnesota – $683,360
  • Mississippi – $692,377
  • New Hampshire – $665,342
  • New York – $768,000
  • Ohio – $729,340
  • Pennsylvania – $724,355
  • Rhode Island – $668,615
  • Tennessee – $697,963
  • West Virginia – $670,161

Additional information on how these states can apply to receive their incentive grant funds will be released at a later date.

*Originally, Missouri was reported as one of the states eligible for funding, but a correction in the Federal Register on June 5 replaced Missouri with Mississippi.
