The funds appropriated in Schedule (8), Special Services for CalWORKs Recipients, are for the purpose of assisting welfare recipient students and those in transition off of welfare to achieve long-term self-sufficiency through coordinated student services offered at community colleges, including workstudy, other educational related work experience, job placement services, child care services, and coordination with county welfare offices to determine eligibility and availability of services. All services funded in Schedule (8) shall be for current CalWORKs recipients or prior CalWORKs recipients who are in transition off of cash assistance for no more than two years. Current cash-assistance recipients may utilize these services until their initial educational objectives are met. Former recipients in transition off of cash assistance may utilize these services for a period of up to two years after leaving cash assistance subject to the conditions of this provision. These funds shall be used to supplement and not supplant existing funds and services provided for CalWORKs recipients attending community colleges. The Chancellor of the California Community Colleges shall develop an equitable method for allocating funds to all districts and colleges based on the relative numbers of CalWORKs recipients in attendance and shall allocate funds for the following purposes:
(a)
Job placement.
(b)
Coordination with county welfare offices and other local agencies, including local workforce investment boards.
(c)

(d)
Child care and workstudy.
(e)
Instruction.
(f)
Postemployment skills training and related skills.
(g)
Campus-based case management, limited to on-campus assistance and services not provided by county case workers that do not supplant other counseling and academic support services funded through existing California Community Colleges categorical programs.
Of the amount appropriated in Schedule (8), $9,188,000 is for child care and does not require a district match. For the remaining funds, districts shall, as a condition of receipt of these funds, provide a $1 match for every $1 provided by the state.
Funds utilized for subsidized child care shall be for children of CalWORKs recipients through campus-based centers or parental choice vouchers at rates and with rules consistent with those applied to related programs operated by the State Department of Education in the 2014–15 fiscal year, including eligibility, reimbursement rates, and parental contribution schedules. Subsidized campus child care for CalWORKs recipients may be provided during the period they are engaged in qualifying state and federal work activities through attainment of their initial education and training plan and for up to three months thereafter or until the end of the academic year, whichever period of time is greater.
Funds utilized for workstudy shall be used solely for payments to employers that currently participate in campus-based workstudy programs or are providing work experiences that are directly related to and in furtherance of student educational programs and work participation requirements, provided that those payments may not exceed 75 percent of the wage for the workstudy positions, and the employers shall pay at least 25 percent of the wage for the workstudy positions. These funds may be expended only if the total hours of education, employment, and workstudy for the student are sufficient to meet state or federal minimum requirements for qualifying work-related activities.
Funds may be used to provide credit or noncredit classes for CalWORKs students if a district has committed all of its funded full-time equivalent students (FTES) and is unable to offer the additional instructional services to meet the demand for CalWORKs students. This determination shall be based on fall enrollment information. Districts shall submit applications to the office of the chancellor by December 1 of each year. If the chancellor approves the use of funds for direct instructional workload, the Office of the Chancellor shall submit a report to the Department of Finance and the Joint Legislative Budget Committee by February 15 of each year that (a) identifies the enrollment of new CalWORKs students, (b) states whether and why additional classes were needed to accommodate the needs of CalWORKs students, and (c) sets forth an expenditure plan for the balance of funds.
As a condition of receipt of the funds appropriated in Schedule (8), by the fourth week following the end of the semester or quarter term commencing in January 2015, participating community districts and colleges shall submit to the office of the chancellor a report, in the format specified by the chancellor in consultation with the State Department of Social Services, that includes, but is not limited to, the funded components, the number of hours of child care provided, the average monthly enrollment of CalWORKs dependents served in child care, the number of workstudy hours provided, the hourly salaries and type of jobs, the number of students being case managed, the short-term programs available, the student participation rates, and other outcome data. It is intended that, to the extent practicable, reporting from colleges utilize data gathered for federal reporting requirements at the state and local level. Further, it is intended that the office of the chancellor compile the information for annual reports to the Legislature, the Governor, the Legislative Analyst, the Department of Finance, and the State Department of Social Services by February 15 of each year.
First priority for expenditures of any funds appropriated in Schedule (8) shall be in support of current CalWORKs recipients. However, if caseloads are insufficient to fully utilize all of the funding in this schedule in a cost-beneficial way, it is intended that up to $5,000,000 of the funds subject to local matching requirements may be allocated for providing postemployment services to former CalWORKs recipients who have been off of cash assistance for no longer than two years to assist them in upgrading skills, job retention, and advancement. Allowable services include direct instruction that cannot be funded under available growth funding, child care to support attendance in these classes consistent with this provision, job development and placement services, and career counseling and assessment activities that cannot be funded through other programs. Child care services may only be provided for periods commensurate with a student’s need for postemployment training within the two-year transitional period.
Prior to allocation of funds for postemployment services, the chancellor shall first secure the approval of the Department of Finance for the allocations, complete a cumulative report on the outcomes, activities, and cost-effectiveness of the program no later than February 15 of each year in compliance with the Budget Act of 1998 (Ch. 324, Stats. 1998) and the Budget Act of 1999 (Ch. 50, Stats. 1999) and this act, and shall provide the rationale and justification for the proposed allocation of postemployment services to districts for transitional students.
If a district is unable to fully expend its share of child care funds, it may request that the Office of the Chancellor approve a reallocation to other CalWORKs purposes authorized by this provision, subject to all pertinent limitations and district match required for these purposes under this provision.
Of the funds appropriated in Schedule (8) for the Special Services for CalWORKs Recipients Program, no less than $4,900,000 is to provide direct workstudy wage reimbursement for students served under this program, and $613,000 is available for campus job development and placement services.
