CCRB oversees the administration of federal and state funds specific to CTE and the implementation of CTE activities.
Two funding sources are available. The Strengthening Career and Technical Education for the 21st Century Act, known as Perkins V, provides federal funding. State legislative funds, known as Next Gen CTE, are covered in NMSA 22.1.12.
The policies within the CCRB Policies and Procedures manual address how institutions apply for funding.
Federal funding is available for building and improving CTE programs at public secondary school districts, state and local charter schools, community colleges, technical institutions, or other 2-year postsecondary institutions, that provide rigorous and relevant CTE.
State funding is available through a seven-year pilot CTE program, starting in July, 2019. Funds are available for public secondary school districts and state and district charter schools, to leverage federal programming and to improve CTE support programs such as math integration, career exploration, employability skill development or other CTE programs that may not qualify for federal funding.
