Local Control Funding Formula Equity Multiplier

Funding Description

The Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) Equity Multiplier provides additional funding to local educational agencies (LEAs) for allocation to schoolsites meeting nonstability and socioeconomically disadvantaged pupil thresholds in the prior year. This funding must be used to provide evidence-based services and supports for students at these schoolsites. LEAs are also required to document the efforts to improve outcomes for students at these schoolsites beginning with the 2024-25 Local Control and Accountability Plan.


Eligible Applicants Local educational agencies
Required Eligibility Criteria Schoolsites within a county office of education, school district, or classroom-based charter school that generate an LCFF entitlement, that also have prior year nonstability rates greater than 25 percent and prior year socioeconomically disadvantaged pupil rates greater than 70 percent per the California Department of Education's (CDE) Stability Rate Report are eligible for funding. Charter schools that are nonclassroom-based as of the prior year's Second Principal Apportionment are ineligible for LCFF Equity Multiplier funding.

Allocation Formula The LCFF Equity Multiplier is a schoolsite funding calculation. For each eligible schoolsite, a calculated statewide Equity Multiplier rate will be multiplied by each schoolsite's adjusted cumulative enrollment for the prior year, as identified in CDE's Stability Rate Report. The schoolsite will receive the product of this calculation or $50,000, whichever is greater. The statewide Equity Multiplier rate is determined by the total amount of LCFF Equity Multiplier funding and the total adjusted cumulative enrollment eligible to generate funding in any given fiscal year. The rate is equal to the amount needed to fully allocate LCFF Equity Multiplier funding.
