About this grant
This grant to Voices for Ohio’s Children will support the development of the Ohio Statewide Afterschool Network to continue to build an afterschool and summer learning system that improves outcomes for children and youth through school-based or school-linked afterschool programs. Over the next three years, the network will support the development of policy, partnerships, and funding to benefit youth in afterschool programs. The network’s specific initiatives will include: 1) developing a new afterschool data initiative on the availability and locations of afterschool programs; 2) coordinating a strategy to increase state funding in support of afterschool programs; and 3) creating nutrition guidelines for afterschool programs.
