About the COVID-19 Recovery Block Grant

The 2022-23 California State Budget provided $650 million in one-time funding to establish the California Community College COVID-19 Recovery Block Grant. The funds are used on activities that directly support student learning and continuity of education, and mitigate learning-loss related to COVID-19. In addition, the Legislature intended for these funds to be used to prioritize services for underrepresented students. Los Rios is able to use this grant money to fund classified positions for the next five years that will support our student services and outreach efforts.

These categorical funded positions will cease on June 30, 2027. When the funding ends, Los Rios may eliminate these positions. If that happens, then Los Rios will provide notices to all affected employees explaining their rights under the Education Code and Board Policy.
