AEBG Funding - Where's My Money?
2018-19 Preliminary Allocations Now Available
The AEBG Office has released the 2018-19 and 2019-2020 preliminary allocations, by consortia. Consortia can view the 2018-2019 allocations in NOVA. Consortia have until May 2, 2018, to submit their Consortium Fiscal Administrative Declaration or (CFAD) into NOVA. Webinars and guidance will continue to roll out on the NOVA CFAD process steps.
Keep in mind there are two distinct process for AEBG allocations in NOVA. First process is the CFAD, which is due May 2nd. The CFAD is used to by the State AEBG Office to document prior year allocations, and set up AEBG funding disbursement to direct funded and fiscal agent consortia. This is a one-time process.
The second process is the AEBG Allocation Amendment process. AEBG member allocations can be amended after the CFAD is submitted, and consortia can adjust allocations throughout the year (with consent of its membership) based on member activities, carry over, regional needs, etc. These adjustments do not impact or change the CFAD as that is a one-time, once-a-year process. Also, the adjustments do not affect the prior year allocations by member as the State AEBG Office will use the CFAD to revert back to prior year allocations if necessary. Please begin scheduling your public meetings now in order to submit the 2018-2019 CFAD by May 2nd.
Questions & Answers:
Q: If all the consortium members approve a change to the allocations, can a consortium change member allocations after May 2 in NOVA?
Q: Can this new amount drive what members get in the 2019-20 school year?
A: The State AEBG Office will use the prior year CFAD member amounts from 18-19 to drive the allocations for the 19-20 school year. Unless the members approve a change of allocations that is different than the prior year amount.
Direct Funded: Keep in mind, if you are direct funded, it will be difficult to amend allocations for members during the August-June disbursement process from the State Controllers to County Offices to Member Districts. The members would have the transfer funds to other members as the State will not alter the disbursement schedules once the May 2nd CFAD is submitted.
CFAD = documents prior year funding to members & allows the State to set up disbursement schedules.
Allocation Amendment = amending / changing member allocations through the year based on consortium agreement as a result of activities & regional need.

The Adult Education Block Grant Program is a joint effort between the California Department of Education and the Community College Chancellor's Office. Both State agencies have worked together to transfer AEBG funding in order to expedite disbursement to the local entity/regional consortia.
Regional Consortia Allocation Formula
Key state agencies (California Department of Education, State Board of Education, the California Community College Chancellor’s Office, and the Department of Finance) met to develop a funding formula for adult education regional consortia according to the Adult Education Block Grant Program legislation set forth in AB 104.

If you have a K-12 district or COE fiscal agent or are a direct funded K-12 or COE member, please click on the CDE link below to view your allocation schedule. Note that for those with a K-12 fiscal agent or direct funded K-12 members, the processing of the apportionment request by CDE Accounting is anticipated to be completed by the first week of October, however, if the State Controller releases the payments during that time, it will still be approximately 3 weeks before payment is received.
If you have a community college district fiscal agent or are a direct funded community college member, please click on the Chancellor's Office link below to view your allocation schedule.
Remember, if you have a fiscal agent, the breakdown of funding by member will be listed on the CFAD signed by all members and submitted to the AEBG Office in May 2017, not on the allocation schedule. The CFADs for each consortia can be viewed through the details page of the Consortia Directory (CLICK HERE for Consortia Directory).

2016-17 AEBG Consortia Allocations
The 2016-17 Consortia Allocations are funding Consortia only, combining MOE & Non-MOE beginning 7/1/16. This differs from the 2015-16 funding which included a MOE portion of funds separately allocated from consortia funds.
Consortia may choose to be directly funded from the State based on a distribution schedule submitted by the consortium. Alternately, members of the consortium are authorized to designate a member to serve as the fund administrator to receive and distribute funds. If a region chooses to authorize a fund administrator, the member chosen as the fund administrator must commit to developing a process to apportion funds to each member of the consortium pursuant to the consortium’s plan within 45 days of receiving fund appropriated for the program.
If you have a K-12 district or COE fiscal agent or are a direct funded K-12 or COE member, please click on the CDE link below to view your allocation schedule. If you have a community college district fiscal agent or are a direct funded community college member, please click on the Chancellor's Office link below to view your allocation schedule. Remember, if you have a fiscal agent, the break down of funding by member will be listed on the CFAD signed by all members and submitted to the AEBG Office in May 2016, not on the allocation schedule.

MOE funding has been released through the CDE to each individual K-12 district or county office. CLICK HERE for the AEBG 2015-16 MOE Entitlements and related letters
Consortia Funding (Non-MOE) Allocations
The CCCCO and CDE approved a formula to allocate the remaining Adult Education Block Grant Funds that are not included in the Maintenance of Effort (MOE) Funding for Fiscal year 2015-2016 (see formula above). Consortia or Non-MOE funding was released through both the CDE and the Chancellor's Office depending on the consortium's fiscal agent. If a consortia opted out of having a fiscal agent, funds were released directly to each individual member. Please note - K-12, COEs & JPAs received consortia funding via CDE's apportionment process, while community college districts received consortia funding via the Chancellor's Office apportionment process.
