Grants and Contracts Details
The CBWTP is a cooperative effort between participating local school districts, the Kentucky Department of Education, Office of Vocational Rehabilitation, and the Human Development Institute at the University of Kentucky. Established originally in 1984 as the result of a federal grant serving eight central Kentucky counties, the program has grown to 68 school districts in 2011-2012 with approximately 700 students starting the program. The CBWTP is jointly funded by the Office of Vocational Rehabilitation, the Department of Education, and Local Education Authorities. Funds provided by the OVR are used to pay local education authorities (school districts) for services provided to students through the program as well as for two thirds of the technical assistance provided through HDI at the University of Kentucky. School districts that have been approved to participate in the program submit an annual program budget to the OVR and pay a local match of 25% or more. Ultimately OVR provides from 25% to 75% of school district budgets for the CBWTP. The Department of Education provides funds for CBWTP personnel, all training opportunities and one third of the technical assistance provided through HDI at the University of Kentucky.
