Technical Assistance to States

The Division of Academic and Technical Education (DATE) offers customized technical assistance to states. The support assists states and grantees in improving the quality of their career and technical education data and accountability systems and in meeting the requirements of the Strengthening Career and Technical Education for the 21st Century Act, which goes into effect on July 1, 2019. The technical assistance team invites states to submit applications for technical assistance each year and selects states for participation through a competitive review process.

The next call for applications will open in August 2019.
