About this grant
This grant will continue to support the University of Kansas Center for Research, Inc., to further the Kansas Statewide Afterschool Network, a statewide afterschool network designed to raise awareness, build capacity and sustainability, and promote the importance of safe, high quality, affordable out-of-school programs. This grantee is part of the first cohort of Mott-funded statewide afterschool networks. This renewal is an achievement grant, which continues to provide core support to the network, while also encouraging new ideas designed to align and integrate afterschool and education systems. Each network receiving an achievement grant is expected to share lessons learned and products with the national network of statewide afterschool networks.
