About this grant
Since 2002, the Public School Forum of North Carolina has been working to build a statewide afterschool network consisting of state agencies, state and local policymakers, afterschool providers and the private sector. Multiyear funding will enable the forum to 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 advocate for the creation and adoption of operational standards for afterschool programs; and participate in a comprehensive mapping process to show how access to existing afterschool programs coincides with the demographics of disadvantage in specific neighborhoods, communities or counties.
