Funding and Fiscal Management

Request for Applications, revisions, forms, and funding results.

Proposition 47, the Safe Neighborhoods and Schools Act (SNSA), established a continuously appropriated fund, which is provided by savings that accrue to the state from the implementation of the act. The California Department of Education receives 25 percent of the funds for the administration of the LCSSP competitive grant program aimed at improving outcomes for public school pupils by reducing truancy and supporting pupils who are at risk of dropping out of school or are victims of crime.

Funding for the LCSSP grants is contingent upon funds being “appropriated in the annual Budget Act or another statute to the Safe Neighborhoods and Schools Fund …” EC Section 33436.
