Program Initiative Labels and what they mean:

This year is the first year that both the Carl Perkins Application for Funding and the Carl Perkins Supplemental grant initiatives are opening on the same day.  To help everyone with which initiative to select we have provided the information below:

Carl Perkins Application for Funding:

The CTIMS system will only show one of the initiatives below based on where you applied for funding in Previous years.  IF you have made a qualified change in how your school plans to apply for funding in FY19 you will need to contact us so that we can make the change in CTIMS to the correct initiative.  

Example would be - in FY18 you chose/qualified to apply as a stand alone recipient, this year you have chosen/been required to create a consortium of schools, this would change where this school would need to apply from Carl Perkins High School Secondary - 421 to Carl Perkins High School Secondary - 423

Carl Perkins High School Secondary - 421
  •  Select this initiative if you are a high school with an allocation of  $15,000 or more; or if the amount of the allocation is less than $15,000 and followed by an asterisk, on your allocation and options form.

Carl Perkins High School Secondary - 423
  • Select this initiative if you are a high school who is the fiscal agent of a consortium of Perkins recipients who's total allocation combines to $15,000 or more.
Carl Perkins Tech Center Secondary - 421
  • Select this initiative if you are a Technology Center who will use their Perkins allocation as a stand alone entity.
Carl Perkins Tech Center Secondary - 423
  • Select this initiative if you are a Technology Center who is the fiscal agent of a consortium of Perkins recipients.
Carl Perkins Post-Secondary - 422
  • Select this initiative if you provide Post-Secondary CTE Education and have received a Pink Allocation and Options form from the state.
     

Carl Perkins Supplemental Grants:

Carl Perkins Supplemental Grants are Perkins funded grants focused on the development of innovative best practices  in the categories below. 

THIS IS A COMPLETELY SEPARATE APPLICATION PROCESS FROM THE REGULAR PERKINS PROCESS ABOVE.

 Each application has submission criteria and are awarded on a competitive basis, submitting an application does not guarantee selection and approval of the project:  To apply for a Carl Perkins supplemental grant you must be eligible to use your Carl Perkins Allocation, provided in the Allocation and Options form mailed to the Superintendents office, as a stand-alone entity.  You can click on each initiative to access the requirements of application.

Carl Perkins Supplemental - Career Development - 424
Carl Perkins Supplemental - Disability Services - 424
Carl Perkins Supplemental - High Growth and Emerging Technologies - 424
Carl Perkins Supplemental - Nontraditional - 424

Be sure to select the correct initiative for funding when completing the application, if you have question on what your initiative should be please email your Carl Perkins area representative and we will be happy to provide the initiative name that pertains to your application.
