Who May Apply: (specifically) Awards are made to state eligible agencies for vocational education, which in turn award at least 85 percent of the funds on the basis of statutory formulas to eligible recipients.

To participate in the Basic State Grant program, States must: designate an eligible agency as a sole State agency responsible for the administration or supervision of career-technical education; prepare a five–year State Plan subject to the approval of the Secretary of Education, and submit annual revisions as necessary; and, establish a State performance accountability system to assess State effectiveness in achieving progress in career-technical education, and to optimize the return on investment of Federal funds appropriated for career-technical education.
