Also, most of ESD/SVP grantees have received notification from the program office that submitted budgets for FY 2020-21 have been programmatically approved by ESD/SVP staff. Please note that although these budgets have been given approval by the program office, the release of funds is a process external to the office and they are unable to forecast when that process will take place.
