California Gov. Gavin Newsom issued an executive order Tuesday that addresses multiple groups affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The order waives the 10% cash or in-kind matching requirements needed by domestic violence service providers to receive state grants. Some certification requirements and selective service registration verification, as well as the GPA verification deadline, for Cal Grant applicants are also waived, according to the order.
In addition, the order allows an extended time frame for local governments to ask the State Controller’s Office for reimbursement and suspends deadlines for organizations that are receiving funding from the Energy Commission to develop new technology that supports California’s efforts toward clean energy.
