About this grant
The California Statewide Afterschool Network will work to develop an inclusive, statewide network of afterschool stakeholders to complement the implementation of Proposition 49, passed in 2002 by California voters. Proposition 49 will roughly increase state afterschool funding from $121 million to approximately $550 million. Multiyear funding will provide core support to the network and support efforts to promote policies and practices for school-based/school-linked afterschool programs. In addition, the network will develop and disseminate policy recommendations that support the effective and equitable implementation of afterschool for all.
