About this grant

This grant to Arkansas State University will support the development of the Arkansas Statewide Afterschool Network to establish a structure that improves outcomes for children and youth through school-based/school-linked afterschool programs. This grantee is part of the fourth 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.
