Want to expand your efforts at afterschool programming with a local partner?
Rhode Island Department of Education (RIDE) has released a Request for Proposals for grants to foster new or expanded partnerships between an local education agency and one or more community-based organization to provide afterschool learning and enrichment opportunities for students in a specific school or set of schools, in alignment with Learning, Equity & Accelerated Pathways (LEAP) Task Report. Applications must propose to provide programming that reinforces and complements the school day through a broad array of enrichment activities and academic supports. Approximately $3.9 million in total is available for grants beginning January 1, 2023 and running through September 30, 2024.Either a Local Education Agency or a Community-Based Organization may be the fiscal agent for the grant, but both be signatories on the grant application. Priority will be given to applications that can demonstrate that the LEA is providing matching funding towards this initiative.
The application deadline is Friday, December 9th, 4:00 p.m. Read more here.
