Dear County and District Superintendents:

Third Recovery of Overpayments for the
Learning Recovery Emergency Block Grant
Fiscal Year 2022–23

This recovery of overpayment, in the amount of $2,585,293, for the Learning Recovery Emergency Block Grant (LREBG) is made pursuant to California Education Code (EC) Section 32526(a)(3), added by Section 6 of Senate Bill 141 (Chapter 194, Statutes of 2023).

In the 2022–23 fiscal year, $7.9 billion was appropriated for the LREBG pursuant to EC Section 32526, and 100 percent of the funding was paid to eligible local educational agencies (LEAs). As part of the 2023–24 State Budget, the total amount for the LREBG program funding was reduced by a net $1.1 billion which resulted in a 14.3 percent reduction for all LEAs that received funds. The calculated overpayments are being recovered from the December 2023 Principal Apportionment Monthly Payment for LEAs that did not have available funds in the prior recoveries. Additional balances will be recovered via invoice.

The Schedule of the Third Recovery of Overpayments is available on the California Department of Education’s LREBG Funding Results Webpage at https://www.cde.ca.gov/fg/fo/r14/lrebg22result.asp.

The LREBG funding is available to county offices of education, school districts, and charter schools for learning recovery initiatives through the 2027–28 school year that, at a minimum, support academic learning recovery, and staff and pupil social and emotional well-being. Additional information regarding the LREBG is available at https://www.cde.ca.gov/fg/aa/ca/learningrecebg.asp.

If you have any questions regarding this recovery, please contact the Categorical Allocations and Audit Resolution Office by email at CAAR@cde.ca.gov.

For questions regarding programmatic requirements, use of funds, and expenditure reporting, please contact the School Improvement and Support Office by email at LREBG@cde.ca.gov.

Sincerely,

Elizabeth Dearstyne, Director
School Fiscal Services Division
