ATTENTION CHARTER SCHOOLS: $117 Million in Funding Available--Register Now for Proposition 39 K-12 Grant Application Workshops

The California Energy Commission is presenting two informational Proposition 39 K-12 Program workshops for charter schools in November--one in Northern California (Hayward) and one in Southern California (Downey). The workshops, which are presented by the Energy Commission at no cost, will focus on how to take advantage of Proposition 39 K-12 funding and how to submit an energy expenditure plan application.

More than $117 million in energy project funding is available, yet only 30 percent of charter schools have requested an allocation. Now is the time to start the application process to request FREE energy project funding! Remember, the deadline to submit an energy expenditure plan application is August 1, 2017.

Reserve your seat by contacting the Proposition 39 K-12 hotline, toll-free at (855) 380-8722 or for out-of-state callers at (916) 653-0392. You may also register by email at

The California Clean Energy Jobs Act (Prop. 39) changed the corporate income tax code and allocates projected revenue to California's General Fund and the Clean Energy Job Creation Fund for five fiscal years, beginning with fiscal year 2013-14. Under the initiative, roughly up to $550 million annually is available for appropriation by the Legislature for eligible projects to improve energy efficiency and expand clean energy generation in schools.

Eligible local educational agencies (LEAs) — including county offices of education, school districts, charter schools and state special schools—can request funding by submitting an energy expenditure plan application to the California Energy Commission. For the first year, there is an option to receive part or all of a school's allocation for energy savings planning purposes. The Energy Commission approves plans and works with the California Department of Education, which subsequently distributes funds after plans have been approved.

The Energy Commission is committed to helping applicants through the process. Tools and resources on this page are designed to help expedite filing an application for approval. New materials and updates will be posted as they are available.
