Article4National Immigration Law Center Webinar This Friday
The National Immigration Law Center (NILC) is offering a webinar this Friday, March 10, from 12:00 to 1:30 PM PST, for community college and adult school students who have DACA and/or are undocumented. We encourage regional consortia representatives to attend this webinar in place of an AEBG Technical Assistance Webinar this Friday. Additionally, we encourage you to to pass along this information to your students.  

Additionally, the NILC announced a new tool called Immi from the Immigration Advocates network.  This free online tool helps individuals understand their immigration options and rights. Here's what "Immi" has to offer, in English and Spanish:
  • an interview process to learn about the options, including ways to stay
  • a Learning Center that explains the law, legal rights, and important words
  • a legal directory to find legal help

Article4Preliminary Allocations Released

The AEBG 2017/18 and 2018/19 Preliminary Allocation schedule was released on Friday, February 24. 



Article4CFAD Now Open
With the release of the preliminary allocations, the 2017-18 Consortium Fiscal Administration Declaration (CFAD) is open. The CFAD is the process whereby the AEBG consortia members agree upon whether to designate a fiscal administrator or choose direct funding. Additionally, this is the process for members to agree upon their allocations for the 2017-18 fiscal year and make any adjustments from prior years.  
Consortia primary contacts can access the CFAD through the AEBG Consortia Portal. Access to the AEBG Portal is limited to the consortium primary contact or their designated representative.
If you are a primary contact or designated representative and have never accessed the Web Portal, click the link to the Web Portal below and click on the "Sign Up" link. If you forgot your password for the portal, navigate to the portal and click on "(forgot?)" next to "Password."  For more details regarding access to and navigation of the Portal, see the link for the Web Portal User Guide included below. 
Please note that member representatives will be required to certify the CFAD with their signature either on paper or digitally. Primary Contacts should refer to the CFAD form or the guidance for instructions on how to submit these signatures.

Article4Partnerships That Unlock Social Mobility Events
Local workforce development boards and community colleges are coming together to help achieve sustainable social mobility for all Californians through the acquisition of skills and access to successful careers, enhancing the system's capacity to provide career counseling, job placement, and supportive services. AEBG students especially lack social mobility because of limited English proficiency, no high school diploma, multiple barriers to success, no job, or a low-paying job. As a result, AEBG students are stuck and cannot move forward (and upward).
The California Workforce Association is hosting community events across the state. AEBG consortia are invited to attend to learn more about how this effort can help our AEBG students. There are seven remaining sessions throughout the state:
  • March 16 in Riverside
  • March 17 in San Diego
  • March 20 in Richmond
  • March 21 in Santa Clara
  • April 3 in Redding
  • April 4 in Eureka
  • April 10 in Napa

Article4National Skills Coalition Webinar: Data Tools for Workforce Policy
