Proposition 39 K-12 Program - March 1, 2018, Remaining Balance Estimate

The Proposition 39 K-12 Program received $1.748 billion over five fiscal years, beginning with fiscal year 2013-2014 and ending this fiscal year 2017-2018.

As of March 1, 2018, it is estimated that $114.5 million remains unrequested from the Proposition 39 K-12 Program. This estimate includes both the remaining funds allocated to local educational agencies (LEA) that have not submitted an energy expenditure plan, and the remaining balances of the participating LEAs that submitted an energy expenditure plan but did not request the entire five-year allocation.

The California Energy Commission is reviewing all submitted energy expenditure plans, with June 30, 2018, as the final date to approve all requests for funding. On July 1, 2018, the Energy Commission will provide the California Department of Education (DOE) the final energy expenditure plan approval list. In July, DOE will determine the final remaining balance for the Proposition 39: Clean Energy Job Creation Fund’s K-12 Program. 

Questions may be directed to Prop39@energy.ca.gov or the Proposition 39 (K-12) Hotline, toll-free at 855-380-8722, or for those out-of-state at (916) 653-0392.


February 1, 2018
FINAL REMINDER: Energy Expenditure Plan Due Date is February 26, 2018

Final Reminder: February 26, 2018, is the final opportunity to request Proposition 39 funding. If a local educational agency (LEA) has award allocation remaining, now is the time to apply by submitting an energy expenditure plan (EEP) to the Energy Commission.

All amendments requesting additional Proposition 39 K-12 grant funding are also due by February 26, 2018.

After February 26, 2018, the Energy Expenditure Plan Online System will not accept new energy expenditure plans or amendments requesting additional Proposition 39 funding. However, amendments for adjustments to approved EEPs that do not request additional funding will continue to be accepted after February 26, 2018. Rules regarding amendments that document significant EEP changes are outlined in the program guidelines.

Questions may be directed to Prop39@energy.ca.gov or the Proposition 39 (K-12) Hotline, toll-free at 855-380-8722, or for those out-of-state at (916) 653-0400.

California Energy Commission staff will conduct a workshop to seek public comments into program design for the School Bus Replacement, ECAA-Ed Competitive, and Proposition 39 K-12 Competitive programs on:

Background

Senate Bill 110, (Chapter 55, Statutes of 2017), allocates funding for three programs to be administered by the Energy Commission: 1) Up to $75 million to be provided to school districts and county offices of education for grants or loans for school bus retrofit or replacement; 2) Up to $100 million on a competitive basis for low or no-interest ECAA-Ed loans for eligible energy projects; and 3) Any remaining funds are allocated to a new Proposition 39 K-12 competitive grant program for local education agencies for energy efficiency and energy generation projects. Staff from the Energy Commission, Fuels and Transportation Division, will discuss a draft concept under consideration for a solicitation on the school bus replacement program. Local Assistance and Finance Office staff will present the draft program concept under consideration for a solicitation for both the ECAA-Ed Competitive and the Proposition 39 K-12 Competitive programs. This workshop will discuss funding, eligibility requirements, consider evaluation criteria, and respond to public comments and questions.

Overview

The California Clean Energy Jobs Act (Prop. 39) changed the corporate income tax code and allocates projected revenue to California's General Fund and the Clean Energy Job Creation Fund for five fiscal years, beginning with fiscal year 2013-14. Under the initiative, roughly up to $550 million annually is available for appropriation by the Legislature for eligible projects to improve energy efficiency and expand clean energy generation in schools.

Eligible local educational agencies (LEAs) — including county offices of education, school districts, charter schools and state special schools—can request funding by submitting an energy expenditure plan application to the California Energy Commission. For the first year, there is an option to receive part or all of a school's allocation for energy savings planning purposes. The Energy Commission approves plans and works with the California Department of Education, which subsequently distributes funds after plans have been approved.

The Energy Commission is committed to helping applicants through the process. Tools and resources on this page are designed to help expedite filing an application for approval. New materials and updates will be posted as they are available.
