K-12 Education gets a boost from the Lottery

Sacramento -There has been a nice windfall for education in California and it’s great news. State controller, John Chiang, announced that the Lottery Education Fund would benefit institutions and state agencies to the tune of almost 1.5 billion dollars.

The Controller’s Office makes quarterly payments based on lottery income and unclaimed online prizes. This fiscal year, Humboldt County will receive over 3.9 million dollars and the County Treasurer will distribute that money to K-12 schools. Good news indeed.
