CDE clarification for PCSGP applicants
August 31, 2018 Thanks to all who attended CCSA's recent PCSGP "How to" webinar. In response to member questions, we provide some information on nonprofit status below.
The CDE has clarified that PCSGP applicants must be a non-profit entity and in good standing with the Secretary of State (SOS) by the time the application is submitted. In other words, at the time of application submission, CDE staff must be able to verify non-profit status with SOS, and if the applicant is not registered with, not in good standing with, or does not show as a non-profit (in SOS), they would not meet this specific eligibility requirement, and therefore they would not be moved through the peer review process.
