About this grant
This grant will support the Chrysalis Foundation, which coordinates the Iowa Statewide Afterschool Network. In addition to continuing the network’s core work to advance afterschool in Iowa, it will complete a multiyear project to implement an extensive outreach project to expand the network’s relationships, gather data, and increase knowledge of high quality afterschool programs across the state. Specifically, the network will: 1) align outreach activities with other key policy initiatives, including the Governor’s STEM Initiative, expanded learning initiatives, the third-grade reading campaign, and summer learning; 2) develop a data collection and dissemination strategy; and 3) develop and promote a comprehensive understanding of afterschool in Iowa.
