The State Department of Education has awarded summer Enrichment Grants to nearly all applicants that applied. 235 grantees will receive a total of $8.6 million , which will serve over 96,000 students statewide. Expansion Grants, ranging from $2,500 to $25,000, will expand existing enrichment opportunities and increase access for children who might otherwise not have access to summer camp or programming. These grants are geared towards local organizations to either serve more children, subsidize enrollment costs, or both.
Additionally, priority was given to providers that can quickly scale programming to serve more students and/or make their programming more financially accessible to students from low-income communities. Expansion Grant recipients will serve over 40,000 students in regions across the state.
