Abstract: This information collection is used by the U.S. Department of Education to gather State plans from eligible agencies under the Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Act, as amended by the Strengthening Career and Technical Education Act for the 21st Century Act (Pub. L. 115-224) (Perkins V or the Act). State plans consist of narrative information, budgets, and performance levels pursuant to the Act and applicable Federal regulations pursuant to the Uniform Guidance (2 CFR 200) and Education Department General Administrative Regulations (2 CFR 76). Eligible agencies are the State boards, or sole State agencies, responsible for career and technical education in the 50 States, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the outlying areas of the United States Virgin Islands, Guam, American Samoa, the Commonwealth of the Northern Marianas Islands, and the Republic of Palau.
Perkins V authorizes appropriations from Fiscal Year (FY) 2019 through FY 2024. Section 122(a) of Perkins V requires each eligible agency desiring assistance for any fiscal year under the Act to prepare and submit to the Secretary a State plan for a 4-year period, together with such annual revisions as the Act specifies or the eligible agency deems necessary. Eligible agencies may submit a 4-year State plan or, for FY 2019 only, a one-year transition plan followed by a 4-year plan. An eligible agency also may submit its State plan as part of a Combined State Plan under the Workforce Innovation and Opportunities Act of 2014 (WIOA).
