About this grant

This grant increase will enable the American Institutes for Research to continue partnering with the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, the Minnesota Department of Education, and the National Institute on Out-of-School Time at Wellesley College to collect additional data and analyze the impact high-quality afterschool programs can have on the development of literacy skills for elementary school-aged children and the role that social and emotional learning may play in supporting the development of literacy-related skills.
