About this grant
This grant will continue to support the Minnesota Department of Education in the development of the Minnesota Statewide Afterschool Network, a coalition of public and private organizations dedicated to ensuring beneficial options for youth to learn, develop, and contribute during nonschool hours. This grantee is part of the third cohort of Mott-funded statewide afterschool networks. This renewal is an innovation grant, which continues to provide core support to the network, while also encouraging new ideas designed to build or enhance positive, systemic changes that further policies and practices for school-based/school-linked afterschool programs. Each network receiving an innovation grant is expected to share lessons learned and products with the national network of statewide afterschool networks.
