California will receive $6.8 billion of the $54.9 billion in Covid-19 relief funding for K-12 schools through the CARES Act that President Trump signed into law Dec. 27, 2020. This database shows the distribution of the 90 percent of funding that will be distributed based on how much a school district or charter school receives in Title I funding. Because Title I is tied to the number of low-income children in a district, the amounts will vary considerably. Gov. Gavin Newsom has discretion over how to allot the remaining 10 percent to K-12 schools.
