Education Protection Account


The Education Protection Account (EPA) provides local educational agencies (LEAs) with general purpose state aid funding pursuant to Section 36 of Article XIII of the California Constitution. The EPA funding is a component of an LEA's total Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) entitlement as calculated in the Principal Apportionment.

Districts have sole authority to determine how the funds are spent within the guidelines set forth in the EPA. A spending report of how much money was received from the EPA and how that money was spent must be published annually on the entity’s web site.
