Lottery

The State Controller’s Office (SCO) distributes Lottery apportionment quarterly. The restricted (Proposition 20) funding is apportioned when sufficient Lottery revenue is received to achieve the threshold, typically in the second, third, and fourth quarter apportionments. The first quarter apportionment includes prior-year adjustments due to the recalculation of 2017–18 and 2018–19 Lottery apportionments based on actual FTES.

To view details on apportionment, adjustments, and net amount paid per remittance advice to counties and districts, please visit the SCO Lottery Educational Apportionments webpage.

The SCO has distributed the 2019-20 second quarter Lottery apportionment on March 30, 2020.  Community colleges should receive $48.58 per FTES for the unrestricted Lottery apportionment.  A total of $112,536,495 has been apportioned to community colleges for the first and second quarters.  No funds were certified for the Proposition 20 lottery apportionment this quarter.

The State Controller’s Office (SCO) distributed the 2019–20 first quarter Lottery apportionment on December 30, 2019. Community colleges should receive $50.19 per full-time equivalent student (FTES) for the unrestricted Lottery apportionment.

The California State Lottery Commission (CSLC) is projecting sales of $7.295 billion for fiscal year 2019-20.  This level of sales would result in revenues of $1.6 billion for education.  Based on these projections, we estimate in 2019-20 that CSLC will provide $207 per FTES ($153 in unrestricted lottery revenues and $54 per FTES in Proposition 20 lottery revenues).
