School and Library Improvement Block Grant (Flexible Funds)

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 School and Library Improvement Block Grant, which combined the School Library Materials (SLM) and School Improvement Program (SIP). Local educational agencies (LEAs) that participated in SIP prior to the inclusion in the block grant could use the funds for any purpose previously authorized by both programs as determined by the school advisory committee. LEAs that did not participate in SIP could use the funds for SLM.
