The Expanded Learning Opportunities Grant (ELO-G) was created to support local educational agencies (LEAs) and schools as the result of the COVID-19 pandemic and to support recovery efforts. LEAs must implement a learning recovery program, that at a minimum, provides supplemental instruction, support for social and emotional well-being, and, to the maximum extent permissible under the guidelines of the United States Department of Agriculture, meals and snacks to specified student groups, as defined in California Education Code Section 43522, who have faced adverse learning and social-emotional circumstances.

The ELO-G shall be expended only for any of the following purposes: extending instructional learning time, accelerating progress to close learning gaps, integrated pupil supports, community learning hubs, supports for credit deficient pupils, additional academic services, and training for school staff. LEAs are encouraged to engage, plan, and collaborate on program operation with community partners and expanded learning programs, and leverage existing behavioral health partnerships and Medi-Cal billing options, in the design and implementation of services.
