American Rescue Plan


With billions in funding available for afterschool and summer enrichment, the American Rescue Plan presents a tremendous opportunity to support students' recovery.

Afterschool programs keep kids safe, inspire them to learn and help working families. For every child in a program, two are waiting to get in. We're working to change that.
