Funds made available under this Act for technical and adult education activities will supplement, and will not supplant, non-federal funds expended to carry out technical activities.

Eligible applicants are West Virginia LEAs.
Interested applicants should contact the West Virginia Department of Education for more information on how to apply and application deadlines.
Funds allocated to the State Board of Education under the Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Act of 2006 for secondary technical education programs will be distributed by formula to LEAs:

Upon approval of the waiver request, the LEA may receive the allocation for which it qualifies under the statutory formula.
