2019–2020 WIOA Expenditures and Final/Revised Final Claim Reports (sent September 28, 2020)

Dear Adult Education Administrators,

Your agency is receiving this message because it has not yet submitted a final Expenditure Claim Report (ECR) for 2019–2020 or has an unclaimed grant balance for 2019–2020.

In May, a spending extension authority made it permissible for WIOA, Title II Adult Education Programs to elect to spend 2019–2020 funds through September 30, 2020. These funds allowed for agencies to continue services for students, support teachers in professional development and planning, and purchase supplies including Personal Protective Equipment. If your agency elected to take advantage of this extension, please make sure to wrap up all related activities before the extension expires.

Final Expenditure Claim Reports due October 15

Final ECRs should be completed and submitted to the California Department of Education by Thursday, October 15, 2020. Include any 2019–2020 funds spent during the extension period and make sure to complete the section for reporting the total amount of AEFLA and non-Federal funds expended on workforce training and infrastructure costs. Please note that extensions beyond October 15, 2020, will not be given as the information is needed to complete a federal report.

Revised Final Expenditure Claim Reports - Request by October 8

If your agency has already submitted a Final ECR and needs to make a revision in order to add expenditures:

  1. Review the instructions for this process which have been posted within the Adult Education Online Application and Reporting Resources web page (login required).
  2. Notify your Fiscal Analyst by email, no later than October 8, 2020, to allow sufficient time for completing the entire revision process before the due date of October 15, 2020.

Revised ECRs should be submitted online. Note that extension requests beyond October 15, 2020 will not be given. Agencies that have already received payment against a Final ECR may anticipate an additional payment once the revision is approved and processed, if additional funds were claimed.

If you have any questions, please contact your CDE Fiscal Analyst by email or the Adult Education Office by email at
