Governor Ned Lamont has announced the release of up to $11 million in new funding to support the expansion of summer learning programs in Connecticut, particularly for children who have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. The Connecticut After School Network is proud to partner with the Governor and the State Department of Education in helping camps and summer programs access this new funding provided by the American Rescue Plan.
For the expansion grants, applicants can apply for grants of up to $25,000 per program site and may submit up to three separate applications for different sites. A maximum of one grant will be awarded per site/location, with a maximum of three per organization. Nonprofit summer camps, child care centers, community-based organizations, and municipal agencies are encouraged to apply.
Non-profit organizations; municipalities; licensed/regulated providers of school-age childcare; and privately or publicly owned summer camp programs can apply.
Note: both public schools and districts, as well as independent schools, are not eligible.
Public schools and districts interested in funding summer programming may use their ESSER I, II or III funds to support these activities, including through contracts with other organizations. Please contact Josh Souliere at the Agency of Education with questions regarding ESSER funds.
If an independent school is eligible for the GEER EANS program, they may partner with the Agency of Education to help with summer programming costs. Questions regarding the use of GEER EANS funds should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The National Geographic Society recognizes that educators, who are among the many dedicated individuals on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic, are pioneering new ways of teaching so that students can continue learning.

The resources developed via this funding must be scalable across different schools and communities and will be made accessible to all educators through the National Geographic Society website.

We will strive to send out decisions every two weeks, but the volume of submissions might slow that process at times.

Educators can also ask questions by visiting @NatGeoEducation on Twitter.
The Cornelia T. Bailey Foundation Eager to Learn program was created to provide assistance to Florida's most vulnerable learners. Through this program, we will ensure that students from every socioeconomic background have access to the highest quality SAT and ACT prep materials and tutors. We formed the ETL program to partner with organizations who are poised to provide these services or who are already working with students to raise scores on the ACT and SAT tests. We want to empower students by providing them with a fair and equal opportunity to get into the best colleges and universities and position them to be offered scholarships and tuition packages by raising their scores.
Organizations applying for funding must meet the following criteria:
We want to hear from organizations who are currently working towards closing the achievement gap and helping to support the student in the process. We understand the systemic issues surrounding today’s underprivileged youth. We want to help students, community leaders, and families find the support they need to navigate the education system, and to provide the same opportunities for every student in Florida.

This year, Gray Family Foundation seeks proposals that stimulate or promote the teaching of environmental education in formal and informal K-12 educational environments to increase outdoor experiences for youth – either during the school day, as part of distance or virtual learning, or as a service or opportunity offered to families and youth outside of the context of the school setting.

During this grant cycle, we are also especially interested in supporting opportunities for organizations, schools, and/or school districts to use and integrate outdoor spaces (e.g. schoolyards, playgrounds, nearby parks or natural areas) into student learning as a method for both engaging students and reducing risk for students and educators during the COVID-19 pandemic.
