Grant Opportunity for Out-of-School Time Programs
Our partners at the Afterschool Alliance informed us of a grant opportunity for out of school programs available in just 10 states this fall, including the District of Columbia, focused on programs that are providing meals through the USDA child nutrition programs to students and/or families.
Share Our Strength/No Kid Hungry are operating a mini grant program to get about $25 million in funds out to afterschool programs with a focus in particular on 21st CCLC-funded programs providing meals.
They hope to disperse 300 to 500 mini grants ranging from $15,000 to $100,000 each to afterschool programs. The grants are available now and funds could be used at the local program level for a variety of uses aimed at making it easier for programs to provide meals to families and students through the USDA child nutrition programs.
The process should not take long and they are wanting to fund programs quickly.
