Read our Guest Blog Post on Rural Afterschoolby Susan Rohwer
Recently, the Afterschool Alliance's new Policy Director Erik Peterson was a featured guest on The Back Forty - the official blog of RuralVotes. His guest blog post, "Rural Afterschool Programs: Is Help on the Way?" describes new legislation introduced in Congress that would assist rural afterschool programs by providing needed grant funds.
RuralVotes promotes initiatives and ideas supporting the revitalization of rural America and is dedicated to building a solid, informed and participatory base of rural citizens, actively engaged in community, civic and electoral processes at the federal, state and local levels.
