Diversified Funding

Sustaining investment in afterschool programs is an ongoing task. While federal 21st Century Community Learning Centers funding has remained fairly constant over the years, it can only be used by local grantees for between three-five years, which means local afterschool programs must identify funding to replace it. Different funding sources allow afterschool providers to experiment and innovate with programming in ways that a single source of funding might not typically allow leading to a stronger and more comprehensive set of services.
