CTE Funding

The federal government funds CTE programs in the United States through the Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Act of 2006. Funds are distributed to states (2017 allocations by states can be found in the table at the end of  this document ),  who then provide it to school districts by methods that vary from state to state. Private funding also exists, but the foundations that provide it tend to focus on higher education, but are worth exploring, e.g. Carnegie Foundation and The Wallace Foundation.

More information can be found in this interview,  which also has some useful links for further exploration.
