Fiscal Year 2017-18 Local Educational Agency Allocations Announced

The California Department of Education has posted the Proposition 39 K-12 Program funding allocation for fiscal year 2017-18. This is the final allocation for the five year program. Go to the California Department of Education’s Proposition 39 California Clean Energy Jobs Act web page, to view the details

Allocations are also linked from the Energy Commission’s Proposition 39: California Clean Energy Jobs Act – 2013 web page, under Key State Agencies – California Department of Education at:

Reminder: February 26, 2018, is the final opportunity to request Proposition 39 funding. If a local educational agency (LEA) has award allocation remaining, now is the time to apply by submitting an energy expenditure plan (EEP) to the Energy Commission. An LEA may also consider amending an approved EEP to increase the requested grant amount based on any remaining allocation. For example, an LEA could add energy measures or reduce the cost share to approved energy measures in an approved EEP. After February 26, 2018, the Energy Expenditure Plan Online System will not accept new energy expenditure plans or amendments requesting additional Proposition 39 funding. However, amendments for adjustments to approved EEPs that do not request additional funding will continue to be accepted after February 26, 2018.

Questions may be directed to or the Proposition 39 (K-12) Hotline, toll-free at 855-380-8722, or for those out-of-state at (916) 653-0392.


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.
