Economic Impact Aid


The Economic Impact Aid (EIA) program is a state categorical program for kindergarten through grade twelve. This program is no longer funded. LEAs with carryover EIA funds must continue to meet the intent of original requirements:

  1. Additional English language acquisition programs, support and services for Limited English Proficient students (LEP) and,
  2. State Compensatory Education (SCE) services for Educationally Disadvantaged Youth (EDY) as determined by the local educational agency (LEA).

Funding Considerations: What Has Not Changed

Since the adoption of the Local Control Funding Formula includes requirements to serve LEP, EDY, and foster youth the EIA program was de-funded after the 2012-13 allocation cycle. EIA carryover funds must still be reported on the ConApp and abide by the rules herein.

The California Department of Education is responsible to monitor and audit the use of such funds to ensure that they are expended for eligible pupils according to the purposes for which the legislation was established for such programs. (EC 62002, 62002.5 and 63003)
