The 2015-2016 State Budget appropriated $500 million to the California Community College Chancellor’s Office (CCCCO) and the California Department of Education to allocate funding for adult education through the Adult Education Block Grant. The funds will be provided to eligible consortia for the purpose of implementing regional plans for adult education. The intent of the Adult Education Block Grant was to expand and improve the provision of adult education via these consortia. In the 2018-2019 year, AEBG updated its name to the California Adult Education Program.
The CCCCO and the California Department of Education (CDE) are working in partnership to implement the requirements outlined in the Adult Education Block Grant. We will continue to provide guidance and solicit feedback from the field throughout the implementation process.
