Congress Passes Budget Supporting Afterschool and Summer Programs

We did it! Congress voted to increase funding for 21st Century Community Learning Centers by $20 million for 2018 – a remarkable rejection of the administration’s proposed total elimination of Community Learning Center funds.

Your calls and emails to congress emphasizing the importance of afterschool and summer programs worked.  Thank you for supporting youth and making your views known on the importance of continuing this programming.

A great way to show your congressional staff the success of your program is to invite them to visit. Check out the Afterschool Alliance tools on scheduling a site visit:  Schedule a Congressional visit to your site
