The CDE has $52 million available for this renewal opportunity!

The Application is Now available in ASSIST for FY 2023-24! 

The application consists of: 

  • A cover page that needs to be signed by the Authorized agent that is auto-filled with your current contact information from ASSIST. 
  • An Operating School form that is auto-filled with your current school site information that will need to be completed to signify if you want to renew the summer site again or cancel it from your renewal application. You will need to fill in an “R” for renew or a “C” for cancel. 

If you apply for the renewal and are successful, you will be renewed at your existing funded site amount based on the enrollment numbers when you initially applied for ESSER III Summer Round 1 RFA.
