Legislation:Assembly Bill 104: Adult Education Block Grant

The California Legislature has passed AB 104 which includes the legislation for the Adult Education Block Grant. The Adult Education Block Grant will fund adult education providers and the adult education regional consortia. Please refer to Sec. 39, Article 9, Section 84900

The California Community College Chancellor’s Office and the California Department of Education are working in partnership to implement the Adult Education Block Grant (AEBG).

Priority areas for AEBG include:

  • Basic skills, high school equivalency/diploma
  • Citizenship, ESL
  • Workforce entry or reentry, including explicit ability for older adults to access these programs
  • Adult programs, including older adult access, that are “primarily designed to develop knowledge and skills to assist elementary and secondary school children to succeed academically in school” (includes child development for elementary and secondary school children)
  • Adults with disabilities programs
  • Short term career technical education
  • Pre-apprenticeship programs/activities

Details about plans to target these priority areas in the north state can be found under the Governance Section of this webpage in Regional Planning documents.
