AFTER-SCHOOL
QUALITY IMPROVEMENT GRANT PROGRAM

In the summer of 2014, The North Carolina General Assembly appropriated five million dollars ($5,000,000) in State funds for the After-School Quality Improvement Grant Program to be administered by the Department of Public Instruction as part of the Competitive Grants to Improve After-School Services Act [S.L. 2014-100]. 

Organizations are eligible to receive two-year grants of up to five hundred thousand dollars ($500,000) a year, based on the proposed number of students served, with an option for a third year of funding.  To determine the level of funding eligibility, organizations utilized the Wallace Foundation Out-of-School Time Cost Calculator and the NC Department of Commerce’s 2014 Tier Designations.  In accordance with the law, grant funds must be matched on the basis of three dollars ($3.00) in grant funds for every one dollar ($1.00) in non-grant funds.  For 2014-15, forty-one (41) applications were submitted by the due date.  Based on the final ratings for the applications, seventeen (17) were approved by the State Board of Education on January, 2015, for a total of $4,784,539.

On September 9, 2015, the General Assembly appropriated six million dollars ($6,000,000) in State funds through S.L. 2015-241 to provide a second-year grant to grant recipients approved under the After-School Quality Improvement Grant Program pursuant to Section 8.19 of S.L. 2014-100. Sufficient funds were appropriated to allow the State to fund the four (4) program proposals representing the next four highest scores in rank order within the strong quality band for a total of $1,108,480.
