The California Energy Commission has posted a “Frequently Asked Questions about the California Clean Energy Jobs Act (Proposition 39)” on their website.
Who is eligible to receive Proposition 39 funds?
California public school districts (K-12), county offices of education, charter schools, and state special schools are eligible to apply for funding. Community college districts will also receive Prop. 39 funds.
When will local education agencies (LEAs) learn how much their Proposition 39 grant will be for this year?
The California Department of Education (CDE) expects to complete 2013-14 fiscal year calculations for all LEAs by September 2013. Small LEAs with 1,000 or less average daily attendance (based on fiscal year 2012-13) have until August 1, 2013 to request two years of funding during the first year.
How will LEAs be notified of their grant amount?
The CDE and the California Energy Commission will post the funding list by LEA online once the calculations are complete.
When will the Proposition 39 draft guidelines be available?
The Energy Commission is working with its partner agencies to develop draft guidelines for public review by this fall. The guidelines will be the focus of discussion at several public workshops across the state. The public will have opportunities to ask questions and offer comments at the workshops.
What does it mean when a company offers a “Proposition 39-certified energy product or service?”
The Energy Commission has not authorized or endorsed any products or services as “Proposition 39-certified.” The Energy Commission does not recognize “Proposition 39-certified” as an official certification or designation.
