Funding Opportunities

Current Funding Opportunities

There are currently no funding opportunities for new grant awards this fiscal year.

Each Year under Perkins V, Congress appropriates roughly 1.4 billion in State formula grants and over $30 million in competitive discretionary grants specified in the law for the improvement of career and technical education (CTE) programs across the nation. In addition, the Department occasionally uses funds to award grants for specialized purposes.

The U.S. Department of Education (Department) accepts requests to serve as a peer reviewer on an ongoing basis. Requests to serve as a peer reviewer should be submitted at least four weeks prior to the program’s application deadline noted on the Department’s Forecast of Funding Opportunities website.
