Building, Sustaining and Improving: Using Federal Funds for Summer Learning and Afterschool
This guide/toolkit, created by EducationCounsel and the Wallace Foundation, can help district leaders, OST providers, and intermediaries identify federal funding streams to support equitable access to summer and afterschool learning. It groups funding streams into three broad headings: (1) creating and sustaining equitable conditions for learning; (2) preparing for program delivery; and (3) building and aligning ecosystems of support. Within these categories, the guide identifies funding streams for seven elements that emerged from a review of research and conversations with national and local out-of-school time leaders. The companion webinar is available here: Using Federal Funds for Summer Learning and Afterschool: A new Guide for Providers, School Districts, and Intermediaries. This resource supports equity.
