After School Learning and Safe Neighborhoods Partnerships Program
In any fiscal year, if a program participant receives state funds to operate a program pursuant to this article that are in an amount in excess of the amount warranted, due to the program serving fewer pupils than planned, to raising an inadequate amount of matching funds, or for any other reason, the State Department of Education shall reduce any subsequent allocations by an amount equal to that overpayment. If the program participant discontinues participation in the program and no allocations are made after the determination that an overpayment has been made, the State Department of Education shall take the following action (a) In the case of local education agencies, the State Department of Education shall bill the agencies for the amount of the overpayment. If payment is not received within three months of the billing invoice date, an amount equal to the amount of the overpayment shall be withheld from the next principal apportionment to the agency.
(b) In the case of entities other than local education agencies, the State Department of Education shall bill the entities for the amount of the overpayment, and pursue appropriate legal remedies if not paid.
