Kentucky receives approximately $17 million of • Perkins funds each year. • Funds are broken out as follows: • 5% is for administration of the grant • 10% is for state leadership • Leadership set-a-side • 1% is for programs in state correctional institutions • $60,000 to $150,000 is to promote nontraditional • occupations (nontraditional occupations are • occupations that employ 25% or less of one • gender)

  8. 85% is for eligible recipients • (eligible recipients are local boards of education, • area technology centers, and postsecondary • institutions that offer associate degrees and/or • diplomas) • Secondary/postsecondary split is based on • enrollment; 56.43% goes to secondary and • 43.57% goes to postsecondary institutions.

  9. Funds are allocated to the counties by a formula that is outlined in the Perkins law. • 30% is determined by the number of students 5 to 17 being served by the district /total number of students 5 to 17 in the state. • 70% is determined by the number of families below the poverty level that live in the district/the total number of families below the poverty level in the state.
