However, the term "junior college" is now usually used to characterize private two-year institutions. The term "community college" has evolved to describe publicly funded two-year institutions.

Another example is Westchester Community College. In the late s, the county operated a popular vocational institute. The New York state government required that the county transform its technical institute into a community college.
The county government resisted this transformation, as it would be responsible for a third of the new institution's operating costs in contrast, the state paid for all of the technical institute's operating costs.

This inequity in basic institutional funding has led to the creation of such organizations as the Community Colleges of Appalachia and the tribal college association, which have sought to promote more equitable funding irrespective of an institution's size or location.
