About this grant
This grant will support Arkansas State University which coordinates the Arkansas Statewide Afterschool Network to continue development of policy, partnerships, and funding to benefit youth in afterschool programs. The network’s specific initiatives will include: 1) increasing communications activities to build public awareness about the importance of out-of-school time; 2) increasing dedicated out-of-school time funding through new partnerships with business and philanthropy; and 3) expanding and activating local and regional out-of-school time coalitions to serve as hubs for professional development and partnerships.
