Federal Budget Eliminates Funding for Afterschool Programs

Last week's white house budget proposal eliminated a number of line items that support children and our OST community. This includes an elimination of funding for 21st Century Community Learning Center funds -- the ONLY dedicated funding source at the federal level that specifically supports OST programs. Since 2012 approximately $15 million of this money has been invested in afterschool programs across the county.
