Uncertain Times (2009)

Uncertain Times 2009:  Recession Imperiling Afterschool Programs and the Children They Serve, a recent survey of afterschool programs, finds that afterschool programs are serving a high need population, struggling to maintain their funding and are worried about how the recession will affect future funding.  Nearly all respondents to this web-based survey say that more children in their communities could benefit from afterschool programs, if programs were available. 69 percent report that funding is less than secure for the next 1 to 2 years and 83 percent report funding is not secure for next 3 to 5 years.
