Get the Facts



California’s state budget consists of three types of state funds: the General Fund, state special funds, and state bond funds.


Most state support for education, health and human services, and state prisons comes from the General Fund.


More than 3/4 of total state spending flows as “local assistance” to public schools, community colleges, Californians enrolled in safety net programs, and others.
