This information has previously been emailed to all current Oklahoma Carl Perkins recipients

FY20 Carl Perkins Basic Grant

Oklahoma's FY20 Carl Perkins Applications for funding are now open.  Deadline for application submission is May 10, 2019.


Please use the link below to access the CTIMS grant module where you will complete and submit your application to ODCTE.
When accessing and submitting your application make sure you are using Internet Explorer Version 11 or later. 
The CTIMS system will only show one of the initiatives below based on where you applied for funding in previous years.  IF you have are planning to make or have made a qualified change in how your school plans to apply for funding in FY20, contact your area Perkins coordinator so that they can make the change in CTIMS to the correct initiative. 

An Example would be - in FY19 you chose/qualified to apply as a stand-alone recipient, but this year you are participating as the fiscal agent in a consortium of schools, your grant project changes 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 secondary school district 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 secondary school district who is the fiscal agent of a consortium of Perkins recipients whose 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, received a Post-secondary Allocation and Options form and are the fiscal agent of a post-secondary consortium or your organization meets the minimum allocation amount ($50,000.00) and plans to use the Perkins allocation as a stand-alone entity.

Your FY20 Allocation and Options notice for the secondary recipients of the Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Act of 2006 will be mailed to your organization during the week of March 11, 2019.  Allocations and Options Notices for secondary recipients are due to ODCTE by April 5, 2019.
Due to a delay in receiving the official notification of total funding your FY20 Allocation and Options notice for secondary recipients will now be mailed to your organization during the week of March 25, 2019. The completed notices are due back to ODCTE by April 19, 2019.

Note to Post-secondary applicants:  There is currently a delay in processing the FY20 Post-secondary Allocation and Options Notices.  Those notices should be out no later than April 1, 2019.  However you may begin your application and you may use your FY19 allocation as a guide in developing your FY20 budget.

If you or your staff are new to using CTIMS for the FY20 Carl Perkins application, please send an email to one of our staff at the addresses below with the first and last name(s), email address(es), and the role(s) the person will hold (local coordinator, local finance, local superintendent/president) so the account(s) can be set up in time to meet the required due date of May 10, 2019.

FY20 Carl Perkins Local Application for Funding Workshops:

With the passage of Perkins V: Strengthening Career and Technical Education for the 21st Century Act, come several changes to the grant application process.  The Federal Legislation staff is hosting several one-day workshops to provide an overview of the new law along with a section-by-section analysis of the transitional 2020 grant Worksheet application and how to complete it.  Attendees will also learn about requirements being implemented beginning with the 2021 fiscal year.

Registration is $25.00 per person and includes lunch and refreshments (can use Perkins funds to cover registration).  Registration will be open at 8:30 a.m. with the workshops beginning at 9:00 a.m. and concluding by 4:00 p.m. each day. We encourage you to bring your computers to work on your application during the meeting.

Event seating is limited and you are encouraged to register early to ensure you attend the workshop of your choice.

Carl Perkins Supplemental Grants Now Available:

Carl Perkins Supplemental Grants are federally funded grants focused on the development of innovative best practices and the advancement of those practices in CTE education.

The Supplemental Grant initiatives have a separate application process from the local application for secondary funding. There is no limit to the number of supplemental applications an organization can submit. Each supplemental grant initiative has defined submission criteria and are awarded on a competitive basis.

Submitting a supplemental grant application does not guarantee selection and approval of the project: 

To apply for the Carl Perkins supplemental grant initiatives below you must be eligible to use your Carl Perkins Secondary or Post-Secondary Allocation as a stand-alone entity. 

Carl Perkins Supplemental – Career Pathway and Industry Partnerships - 424

Make sure to select the correct initiative and year of funding when completing the application in the CTIMS system.
