SB 638 (Torlakson)


On 09/21/2006 Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger signed SB 638 releasing $550 million for the state’s After School Education and Safety (ASES) program. This new legislation allows for easier access to Proposition 49 funds and raises the daily per child rate from $5 to $7.50, raises grant caps, allows for direct grants instead of reimbursement system, and reduces the 50 percent grant match to 33.3 percent.
