 Section 76004.5 is added to the Education Code, to read:

 (a) The California College Promise Grant Program is hereby established to provide planning grants to school districts and community college districts to establish a College and Career Access Pathways (CCAP) partnership pursuant to Section 76004. Subject to an appropriation in the annual Budget Act for this purpose, a grant may be awarded under this section to a school district or community college district that has met the requirements of subdivision (b) of Section 76004 and that has certified its intention to establish a CCAP partnership no later than the fiscal year following the fiscal year in which the grant is received. A grant awarded under this section may be used to cover costs incurred pursuant to subdivision (c) of Section 76004 and to inform parents and students about opportunities that are available through the CCAP partnership.
(b) The grant program established by this section shall be administered by the Superintendent and the Chancellor of the California Community Colleges. The Superintendent and the chancellor shall establish the grant application process and the criteria for determining the amount of each grant. The maximum amount of a grant awarded under this section shall be twenty-five thousand dollars ($25,000) per CCAP partnership.
(c) This section shall remain in effect only until January 1, 2022, and as of that date is repealed, unless a later enacted statute, that is enacted before January 1, 2022, deletes or extends that date.
