Federal funding provides only a fraction of the resources that sustain CTE. How states secure and direct their non-fedreal resources can have a substantial impact on the quality and availability of CTE. This session will examine different state approaches to funding CTE and demonstrate how funding can – and must – be leveraged to support learner achievement at both the secondary and the postsecondary level. The session will profile how states are aligning resources with labor market needs and braiding disparate funding streams to maximize reach and impact.
