About this grant

This grant will allow the Afterschool Alliance to continue to build on two complementary initiatives that will generate additional support for afterschool programs at the federal, state, and local levels. The initiatives are: 1) coordinating an AmeriCorps VISTA effort to continue to build the capacity of the statewide afterschool networks; and 2) conducting election eve polling to learn about voters’ perceptions of and concerns regarding afterschool and expanded learning time.
