The purpose of the CTE Perkins Reserve Grant is to provide seed resources to Perkins formula funded LEAs and Community Colleges in order to drive system and program evaluation, to establish accountability alignment between Perkins V and the Blueprint, and to develop and scale at least one high-leverage CTE strategy that will, in turn, establish sustainable systems, processes, and policies that will outlast the performance period of this grant program.
