About this grant

This grant will support South Dakota Voices for Children which coordinates the South Dakota Statewide Afterschool Network. The network seeks to further improve the sustainability and quality of afterschool programs by securing state-dedicated funding for afterschool programs. In addition to continuing the network’s core work to advance afterschool in South Dakota, it will complete a multiyear project to support the advancement of learning for students beyond the school day by: 1) developing a policy proposal for a dedicated state afterschool funding stream; 2) promoting public awareness about the gaps in afterschool programming due to lack of funding and the benefits of greater access for children and families; and 3) increasing geographical access to quality afterschool programs in underserved areas.
