State Education Trust Fund-Brief Description

The Education Trust Fund (ETF) is the largest operating fund of the State. Revenues credited to the ETF are used for the support, maintenance and development of public education in Alabama, debt service and capital improvements relating to educational facilities, and other functions related to educating the state's citizens. Programs and agencies supported by the ETF include K-12 education, public library services, performing and fine arts, various scholarship programs, the state's education regulatory departments, and two- and four-year colleges and universities. Funding from the ETF is also provided to non-state agencies that provide educational services to the people of Alabama, including the arts, disease counseling and education, and youth development. Ten tax sources are allocated to the ETF, the largest of which are the individual and corporate income tax, sales tax, utility tax, and use tax.

For further details concerning ETF revenues and appropriations, please contact Doryan Carlton. Assignments of budget analysts to selected agencies and programs can be found on the About Us page.
