Quality Enhancements in After-School and Out-of-School Time (ASOST-Q) Grant Program
The Quality Enhancements in After-School and Out-of-School Time (ASOST-Q) Grant Program (Fund Code 530) is a program funded through state line item 7061-9611. Funding is designed to enhance comprehensive and effective after-school and out-of-school time programming for students in grades K-12. Grants support children's and youth's academic, social, and emotional development outside of the regular school day, for public and non-public school-age students during the school year and over the summer months. Priorities for programs include:
- Supporting strong and innovative enhancements to programming using the Departments of Elementary and Secondary Education (ESE) and Early Education and Care (EEC) recommended Guidelines for Quality Enhancements in After-School and Out-of-School Time programs and
- Addressing barriers to student participation.
- Expanding/enhancing quality summer programming to ensure a continuum of programs and services to help to stem summer learning loss.
