The Defining Equity Work Group is forming in order to define equity in grant eligibility and award distribution for state ASES and federal 21st CCLC programs. This work group will build on the work of the Grants Administration and Policy Strategic Implementation Team of the California Expanded Learning Strategic Planning Process and their vision to develop and implement a collaborative process for review and gather feedback on state (ASES) and federal (21st CCLC) equitable funding distribution processes. In addition, this group's work will build on current and pending legislation.
The After School Division is committed to the continued improvement of the grant award process and is seeking interested individuals for Grant Award Process focus groups. The voice of our stakeholders is a vital part of the process in order to ensure that the young people of California are provided with quality expanded learning opportunities.
