About this grant
This grant will support the Nebraska Children and Families Foundation which coordinates the Nebraska Statewide Afterschool Network. In addition to continuing the network’s core work to advance afterschool in Nebraska, it will complete a multiyear project to develop and launch a statewide coalition of city-wide, out-of-school time systems. The network seeks to cultivate strong rural and urban partnerships to effectively promote state-level policy change in support of additional high quality expanded learning opportunities in Nebraska’s highest need communities. To ensure that new models and best practices are incorporated nationally, the network will share lessons learned and products with the other state networks.
