CDE posts LEA allocations from COVID relief funding
The California Department of Education has posted estimated Local Education Agency allocations from the $6.6 billion made available as part of the Assembly Bill 86 COVID-19 relief pack-age. The funding provided by AB 86 will accelerate the safe return to in-person instruction across California and provide schools the resources to expand academic, mental health and social-emotional supports, including over the summer.

“As more school districts across California announce plans to bring students back into classrooms, we at the CDE are providing the technical support our schools need to access resources in a timely way so educators can focus on providing a safe return to in-person learning, accelerate learning and begin recovering,” said state Superintendent Tony Thurmond.
A breakdown of how the $2 billion for In-Person Instruction (IPI) Grants and $4.6 billion for Expanded Learning Opportunities (ELO) Grants were determined for each LEA are available on the CDE’s Grants Funding Results web page,

Funding for the IPI Grants was determined based on the Local Control Funding Formula. The ELO Grants are also determined based on the LCFF with an additional $1,000 for each homeless student.
The $2 billion IPI grants are available to LEAs offering in-person instruction, including hybrid models, by April 1, 2021, and funding will be reduced by one percent for each calendared instructional day that all required groups are not receiving in-person instruction. IPI Grants will be forfeited if an LEA does not offer in-person instruction for all required student groups by May 15, 2021.
