The Doom Patrol 3rd season premiere says its 2021. Which is not possible without ignoring onscreen dates.

I am really unsure of a way around this....
Okay... everything after the scene where Cliff requests that Jane come back inside after it starts raining in the Pilot, I'm bumping that up a year.

So they decided not to change Jay Garrick's suit from the Arrowverse, even though we saw in S1 that he had the classic costume. Ok I guess.

So set in the 'real world' while still being a DC Universe. Just no references to DC superheroes.

Kinda like what Swamp Thing (2019) was. Lucifer too to some degree, I guess.

Going off of Crane's last line in the most recent Titans episode (about "September" arriving), I'm going to bump it up a few months in the timeline.

Before I get into Sweet Tooth, are there any onscreen dates via newspaper, files, etc?

I am getting really confused as to when in the 70s the "Then" flashbacks in the Pennyworth comic are. I might move it to 1976 however, since the Gotham: Dawn of Darkness tie-in novel insinuates that Alfred became the Wayne butler when Bruce just turned 2 years old (Feb. 1977). So far there is no indication as to when he joins the Waynes after quitting MI5, so I will just go with the comic's "Then" in at least late 1976.

The only issue with bringing the Gotham book into the fold means there is the issue of yet another true love of Alfie mentioned: Gabrielle Brument. But in the comics we have Shirley, who is also blonde like Gabrielle's description, and serves the same role...except Gabrielle is shot in the head by Russian goons in the novel and Shirley just goes MIA for over 40 years. Assuming that "Shirley" is a nickname like "Daveboy" that Alfred attributes to his colleagues, I will chalk up the death by headshot wound fate as a pre-Crisis part of Alfred's history.
