Coronavirus (COVID-19) Resources

COVID-19 Resource Center

To support access to information about how best to respond to coronavirus disease, we are maintaining this page with links to resources published by state and federal agencies and other reputable sources. We also advise consulting your local school district and public health department for local information. 

Afterschool and Expanded Learning are positioned to help! CAN is working with our partners at the UC Davis Center for Regional Change to build out an interactive map to help you locate your community’s programs and their connection to hospitals and other essential services (in process of being added).

Additional resources are being curated and these webpages will be updated at least once a week.  If you have questions about the content on this page or suggestions for additional content that would be useful please contact the CAN team.

Expanded Learning Updates As of 3/27/20

Grant Protection

Any After School Education and Safety or 21st Century Community Learning Center program closure or decreased participation related to novel coronavirus (COVID-19) will receive attendance relief to protect grant funding per Education Code Section 8482.8(d).

As a result of SB 117, this waives the requirement for ASES programs to submit the form and any back-up documentation.

Paying Program Staff and Partners

It is permissible for grantees to develop local agreements with hourly and classified staff, partner agencies, and community-based organizations to provide financial relief to support individuals affected.

The Expanded Learning Division is also working on additional guidance related to expanded learning program grants. If you have any questions, please contact
