About this grant
This grant increase will enable the Afterschool Alliance to provide additional support to the afterschool field, including the statewide afterschool networks, to respond to the challenging policy landscape and proposed cuts to afterschool programs. Specifically, this grant increase will: 1) support the implementation of a coordinated communications campaign to highlight the positive benefits of afterschool programs for students, families, and communities; and 2) provide additional capacity to the statewide networks to respond to the challenging policy environment.
