About this grant
This grant to the Utah Afterschool Network will support the development of the Utah Statewide Afterschool Network to continue to build an afterschool and summer learning system that improves outcomes for children and youth through school-based or school-linked afterschool programs. Over the next three years, the network will support the development of policy, partnerships, and funding to benefit youth in afterschool programs. The network’s specific initiatives will include: 1) developing a communication strategy to support sustainable school-based/school linked afterschool programs; 2) creating a funding map to identify federal, state, and local funds being used for afterschool throughout Utah; and 3) supporting a statewide system of evaluation that includes self-assessment and continuous improvement strategies and rigorous impact evaluation.
