California Department of Education
21st Century Community Learning Centers Program
Allocations, Expenditures, and Carryover Funds
As of June 30, 2010
Provision 3 of Budget Item 6110-197-0890 of the 2010–11 Budget Act requires that the California Department of Education (CDE) report to the Legislative Analyst’s Office and the Department of Finance on three fiscal issues related to after school programs supported by the federal 21st Century Community Learning Centers (CCLC) Program:
- Allocation and expenditure data for all programs funded via Budget Act Item 6110-197-0890 in fiscal years 2007–08, 2008–09, and 2009–10
- Reasons for carryover in the program
- Planned use of carryover funds
This report contains the requested allocation and expenditure data, and describes how the implementation of the state funded After School Education and Safety Program resulted in the return to the state of approximately $90 million of 21st CCLC funding. The returned funding resulted from the supplement-not-supplant provisions of federal law, and was immediately awarded to new grant recipients to partially reduce the large unmet demand for after school funds. This returned funding is the primary reason for the "bubble" of carryover in the program. Lastly, the report discusses how the carryover funds are currently being distributed to after school programs to serve additional youth.
