Request a Grant Writer

Grants to California school districts, county offices of education, and charter schools to support the cost of activities and programs for students in grades K-12. Funding may be used to support a variety of services and programs that the state government requires local educational agencies to provide.

Pursuant to GC Section 17581.6, LEAs make an annual choice to receive funds for specified mandated programs and activities, either through the MBG or through the claim reimbursement process pursuant to GC Section 17560. Because the claims process does not include charter schools, the MBG is the only vehicle for charter schools to receive such funding.
