2020–21 Grant Award Notification and Budget Information (sent October 2, 2020)

2020–21 Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act, Title II: Adult Education and Family Literacy Act (WIOA, TITLE II: AEFLA)

Dear Adult Educators:

Grant Awards

The funding results for the 2020–21 WIOA, Title II: AEFLA federal grant have posted to the California Department of Education (CDE) Funding Results web page.

Login to the Adult Education Online Application and Reporting Site to access your Grant Award Notification (GAN) electronically from the WIOA menu. You are responsible for obtaining a wet signature then scanning and uploading the signed GAN file to the CDE by October 16, 2020. While a duplicate copy of your GAN was mailed to you, the quickest way to complete this requirement from start to finish is to do so electronically.

Login and access the Resources web page for a detailed description of the GAN Download/Upload process. Read the instructions carefully as the process is different than last year. If accessibility assistance is needed, please contact your Fiscal Analyst at the Adult Education Office.

Grant Budget

Within the online application, the status of the uploaded GAN file must show as “accepted” before the button to begin the Grant Budget is visible. The Grant Budget must be approved and submitted electronically to the CDE no later than October 23, 2020.

Login and access the Resources web page for details on how to navigate through the budget application. A document titled “Grant Budget Information”, is also accessible from the Budget and Claim Reports web page for specific fiscal details regarding Grant Budget preparation.

Follow these five steps

  1. Read the document “WIOA Grant Award Notification Download/Upload Information”.
  2. Download the GAN file.
  3. Sign (wet ink) and upload to return the GAN file by October 16, 2020.
  4. Read the document “Grant Budget Information” while CDE reviews the uploaded file.
  5. Draft your Budget and submit by October 23, 2020.
