After School Budget Win!

State After School Grant increased by $1 million!

The Connecticut General Assembly completed the 2019 legislative session at midnight last night and passed a budget bill that Governor Lamont is expected to sign. The line item for the State Department of Education’s After School Grants was increased from $4,720,695 to $5,720,695 for the upcoming year. The Request for Proposals for this funding is hoped to be released in mid-July.

For more information about the process for distributing this funding (including some new incentives for small towns) as well as other outcomes from this session, please come to the Connecticut After School Network’s Annual Meeting on Wednesday, June 19 at 10:30 am. Light refreshments will be served.

Please email Michelle at with your RSVPs so we’re sure to have enough snacks for all.
