Perkins/CTSO/Other Options

We have been able to use Perkins funds in the past to help fund our robotics program including purchasing parts, registering teams, and registering for tournaments but are no longer allowed to do so. In the Perkins guidelines I read that CTSO’s (Career Technical Student Organizations) are able to be funded but don’t know much about them. I see that TSA is a CTSO and involved with VEX but when I click on the link on the robotevents page there are no TSA events held in CA which is where we are from.

Just curious if any other schools are able to use Perkins, are a CTSO, involved with TSA, or have any advice on how to fund our program. Thanks for the help.
