During the COVID-19 pandemic, organizations are offering programs for school age children to meet the needs of working parents, and children affected during out of school time. Grants are available to organizations who are providing out of school time programs. Eligible programs are for-profit business, non-profit organizations, school/school districts, community organizations, summer camps, and licensed childcare programs that serve children aged 5 to 18 in out of school time programming during the COVID-19 pandemic. The grant is based on the average daily attendance at a $1000 per child, per month rate. Programs must demonstrate how they will serve at least 25% low-income children.  Funds can be used to support additional costs associated with meeting health and safety needs and reduced revenue due to COVID-19 emergency.
