Student Centered Funding Formula
The Student Centered Funding Formula provides funding that supports access through enrollment-based funding, student equity by targeting funds to districts serving low-income students, and student success by providing districts with additional resources for student’s successful outcomes.
The Budget Act appropriates funds for various purposes, including the Student Centered Funding Formula and other apportionments to the California Community Colleges. Learn more by reading our Apportionment reports.
