American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA)- Enhancing Education Thru Technology – Competitive (Resource Code 4048) Grantees:
The following has been sent to each of the 151 LEAs awarded an ARRA EETT Competitive Grant. The funding for this grant is made in three installments (50%/ 30%/ 20%). The California Department of Education (CDE) has already paid 50% of the grant award amounts to all grantees. We are currently processing payments for the 30% installment. However, the 30% payment to your agency cannot be processed until we receive your expenditure report, which was due back on June 30, 2011.
As you are aware, the CDE is responsible for ensuring that the ARRA EETT federal funds are drawn down and processed in a timely manner by the LEAs as these ARRA funds will expire on September 30, 2011. Copies of expenditure reports can be obtained on the CDE Web site
Also, the final 20% will be paid upon the receipt by the CDE of the End of Period (EOP) Expenditure Report certifying that the total grant award has been obligated or expended in compliance with the conditions of the ARRA EETT grant. The final payment is also conditioned on all required ARRA Section 1512 and other state reporting requirements being met.. Again, the final expenditure report can be filed at any time once the grant has been fully expended or obligated, but no later than September 30, 2011. It is very important that these deadlines are adhered to as these ARRA funds will not be available beyond September 30, 2011.
