About this grant

This grant to the Central Susquehanna Intermediate Unit will enable the Pennsylvania Statewide Afterschool Network to increase the availability and expansion of financial education and college affordability planning by enhancing quality afterschool and summer learning opportunities for underserved youth. This project will support the network to 1) administer a financial literacy and college affordability assessment and needs survey with the afterschool field; 2) develop and promote financial literacy tutorials and resources for afterschool staff and students; and 3) pilot an afterschool financial literacy model with the afterschool community. Central Susquehanna Intermediate Unit will share promising practices and resources with the 50 state networks and the Mizzen by Mott App to enhance college and career readiness initiatives in afterschool programs nationally.
