Serving LGBTQ+ students is core to the California Community Colleges’ mission, critical to the Chancellor’s Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Accessibility work and closely aligns with Vision 2030 goals, Equity in Access, Equity in Support, and Equity in Success, while reducing equity gaps among underrepresented student groups.

In 2021-22 Assembly Bill 132 (the Postsecondary Education Trailer Bill) appropriated $10 million in one-time funding for allocation by the Chancellor’s Office “to community college districts to provide additional funds to support LGBTQ+ students”.  In 2023-2024, $10 million in one-time funding was approved and allocated to continue supporting LGBTQ+ students.
