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 for a range of services and programs that the state government requires local educational agencies to provide.

The Mandate Block Grant provides funding to county offices of education (COE), school districts and charter schools to fund the costs of various mandated programs and activities identified in Government Code (GC) Section 17581.6(f). For each fiscal year that a local educational agency (LEA) elects to receive block grant funding, it must submit a Mandate Block Grant Application which represents the Letter Requesting Funding.
