About Adult Education Block Grant

Yuba Community College District is host to the North Central Adult Education Consortium (NCAEC)


The 2015-2016 State Budget appropriated $500 million to the California Community College Chancellor’s Office (CCCCO) and the California Department of Education to allocate funding for adult education. The funds will be provided to eligible consortia for the purpose of implementing regional plans for adult education. The intent of the Adult Education Block Grant was to expand and improve the provision of adult education via these consortia.

The California Community College Chancellor’s Office and the California Department of Education (CDE) are working in partnership to implement the requirements outlined in the Adult Education Block Grant. The agencies jointly established a state agency to oversee the implementation of the Adult Education plans submitted by each of the 70 consortia during the planning phase. The state office will continue to provide guidance and solicit feedback from the field throughout the implementation process.
