Abstract

States increasingly see performance-based funding (PBF) in adult education as a way to ensure fairness, promote accountability, and strengthen programs. This report summarizes technical assistance, supported by the Office of Vocational and Adult Education, U.S. Department of Education, provided to 12 states to help them develop or revise funding formulas to incorporate performance-based funding. Each state received customized assistance that involved convening a state task force, aligning state goals with funding criteria, modeling funding formulas, and creating a plan to introduce PBF to adult education programs
