What is the Adult Education Block Grant (AEBG)?

Assembly Bill 104 established the Adult Education Block Grant.  The grant provides funding to regional consortiums in the State of California to address the needs of  at-risk adult learners to enable them to get the education and skills needed to enter the work force.  The Napa Valley Regional Consortium for Adult Education was granted $750,000 for 2015-16 to implement our program.  AEBG focuses on seven key areas:

  • Programs in elementary and secondary basic skills, including programs leading to a high school diploma or high school equivalency certificate.
  • Programs for immigrants eligible for educational services in citizenship, English as a second language, and workforce preparation.
  • Programs for adults, including, but not limited to, older adults, that are primarily related to entry or reentry into the workforce.
  • Programs for adults, including, but not limited to, older adults, that are primarily designed to develop knowledge and skills to assist elementary and secondary school children to succeed academically in school.
  • Programs for adults with disabilities.
  • Programs in career technical education that are short term in nature and have high employment potential.
  • Programs offering preapprenticeship training activities conducted in coordination with one or more apprenticeship programs approved by the Division of Apprenticeship Standards for the occupation and geographic area.
