The Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Educational Act of 2006 is the principle funding for Career and Technical Education (CTE) in the United States. Each State is required by the federal government to submit a State plan in order to receive federal funding for its CTE programs. The Act provides federal fiscal allocations and guideline directions to secondary and postsecondary CTE programs for operation and performance. The first Carl D. Perkins Vocational and Technical Education Act was introduced in 1984 and was reauthorized in 1990, 1998 and August 2006.
