Kentucky: Council on Postsecondary Education

Trust Funds & Incentive Funding Programs

Trust Funds

The Postsecondary Education Improvement Act of 1997 (HB 1) created six Strategic Investment and Incentive Trust Funds to bring about change and improvement in Kentucky’s colleges and universities by encouraging behaviors that advance the state’s goals for postsecondary education. The trust funds are maintained and administered by the Council on Postsecondary Education.

Incentive Funding Programs

In addition to the original six trust funds established by House Bill 1, subsequent legislation and budget bills resulted in the creation of the Adult Education and Literacy Funding Program and the Science and Technology Funding Program.
