Funding for this program is unrestricted pursuant to SBX3 4 (Chapter 12, Statutes of 2009), enacted February 2009. For additional information, please refer to the Action on 2008 and 2009 Budget Acts Web page.

Before 2008-09, the funds were restricted to the Carl Washington School Safety and Violence Prevention Act program which allocated funds to school districts and county offices of education (local educational agencies).

Funds may be used for personnel, materials, strategies or programs that materially contribute to meeting the goals and objectives of current law preventing violence among students.
