Request for Proposal Timeline & Procurement

The Santa Barbara Adult Education Consortium (SBAEC) allocation for the Year-8 grant cycle is $912,536.00.  A total of $84,000.00 of unallocated funds from the Year-7 grant cycle has been added to the Year-8 grant cycle thereby bringing the total allocation to $996,536.00.  

All awardees are expected to expend funds no later than March 31, 2024.

The Consortium has historically awarded 70% or more of its total funding to programs.  In 2021-2022, award allocations ranged between $50,000.00 -$132,000.00.

A comprehensive and competitive Request for Proposal submission will align with the California Adult Education Program (CAEP) grant and the Consortium's goals and objectives.

The Consortium welcomes the public, students, teachers employed by local educational agencies, Community College faculty, principals, administrators, classified staff, and the local bargaining units of the school districts and community colleges to submit a SBAEC Request for Proposal to secure program funding for the 2022-2023 grant cycle.

To ensure all prospective bidders and the public receive adequate guidance and their questions are answered for the Request for Proposal, the SBAEC Director/Interim Chair will be hosting a Bidders’ Conference.
