Updated Guidance and Important Reminders -

The RFA section “G. Required Match” has been revised to provide updated guidance on the match requirement. CCCCO has also corrected a typo on page 26 of the RFA that incorrectly indicated that applicants would select California Community Colleges sector(s) in the “Statement of Need” section of the application. It has been corrected to state that applicants should select the appropriate California Department of Education sector(s).

The revised RFA can be accessed here:

In addition, CCCCO has posted an updated scoring rubric which adds information on how reviewers will assess applications. This updated rubric does not change how sections will be scored.

The Rubric can be accessed here:

Things to note:

Applicants have the ability to submit and un-submit their application up until the deadline. Institutions can make changes, if needed, before they submit their application by 5pm on March 15, 2019.

Late applications, and applications that are not submitted by 5pm on March 15, 2019 will not be accepted. We urge applicants to give themselves ample time to submit their application.

Please remember: SWP selection committees will not consider funding any initiatives that are not in the LEA's LCAP. If your SWP plans are not also part of your LCAP, then they don't exist!
