The 2015-16 Budget Act provided $500 million in ongoing Proposition 98 funding for the Adult Education Block Grant. Each consortium received (1) maintenance of effort (MOE) funding for certain providers reflecting their 2012-13 adult education spending; and (2) additional funding based on the region’s share of statewide need for adult education, as measured by various demographic and economic indicators. (For more information about funding in 2015-16, see How Is Each Consortium’s Funding Determined?) The 2016-17 Budget Act maintains the $500 million funding level for the Adult Education Block Grant. Individual consortia receive the same allocation in 2016-17 as they received in 2015-16.

Consortia reported to the state their 2015-16 enrollment by member type. Member types include schools (school districts, county offices of education, and joint powers agreements between schools, or JPAs) and community colleges. Members reported enrollment in four primary instructional areas: elementary and secondary basic skills (reading, writing, and mathematics), English as a second language (ESL), career technical education (CTE), and programs for adults with disabilities (AWD). In addition, members reported enrollment in three other areas: workforce re-entry programs, pre-apprenticeship programs, and programs to help children succeed in school (Other). Data are self-reported and may be incomplete.

In addition, each consortium’s annual plan for 2016-17 includes a list of partner agencies collaborating with consortium members to enhance adult education services. These partner agencies include community based organizations, libraries, workforce agencies, and correctional facilities. Information about each consortium’s partners can be found in the Consortium Directory on the Adult Education Block Grant website.


To determine need-based consortia funding in 2015-16, the California Community College Chancellor, Superintendent of Public Instruction, and Executive Director of the State Board of Education considered the demographic variables below.
