The Intent to Award list shows only new funding awarded for the ASES Universal 2022–23 Request for Application (RFA)—This posting is only for newly funded sites or sites that requested an increase through the RFA process for the Fiscal Year 2022–23. Current ASES grantees and grantees that were up for renewal on Cycle A will not appear on this funding list.

These grant awards are made contingent on the allocation of state funds to the State of California.

The appellant must file a full and complete appeal in writing containing the following information:

  • Describe the issue(s) in dispute;
  • State the legal authority or other basis for the appeal; and
  • State the remedy that is sought.

The appeal letter must be signed by the Authorized Signatory or the Designee that signed the original application. The EXLD will be accepting signed scanned signatures or Adobe Acrobat digitally signed letters. The Letter of Appeal must be sent via email to within 10 calendar days of the posting of the Intent to Award and with “ASES Universal Appeals” on the subject line.

Please note: The Intent to Award list may change after the grant award appeal period is complete. The final awards will be posted on the CDE website when all data is verified and appeals are decided.
