Cal-SAFE funding provides support to pregnant and parenting teens and their children.

The Los Angeles County Superintendent of Schools is requested to immediately inform the Pomona Unified School District of this apportionment. Warrants will be mailed to the county treasurer approximately four weeks from the date of this Notice. For standardized account code structure coding, please use Resource Code 6092, Cal-SAFE Child Care and Development Services, and Revenue Object Code 8590, All Other State Revenue.

Local educational agencies (LEAs) that start new Cal-SAFE child care programs or expand the capacity of existing child care programs are eligible to receive one-time start-up funding pursuant to EC Section 54749(j).
