About this grant

This grant will support the Afterschool Alliance in developing a financial roadmap for afterschool that will provide more accurate information on how much funding is needed to reach the goal of high quality afterschool programs for all. The roadmap will: assess current investments in afterschool programs from the public sector, parents, foundations, and businesses; and estimate the added investment necessary at each level to provide quality afterschool for all those who desire it. The report will also create benchmarks for measuring progress and help elucidate the roles of private organizations and public agencies in providing quality afterschool systems. The Afterschool Alliance plans to strategically survey eight to 10 states about their afterschool program funding and produce a companion report, which will analyze federal, state and local funding streams.
