The Ohio Department of Education awarded competitive grants to support partnerships between schools and community-based organizations (CBOs) that seek to provide out-of-school time (OST) services designed to address students’ academic, social and emotional needs.

Totaling up to $89 million of the state’s federal relief funds, the grants must be used to establish or expand comprehensive afterschool programs and/or evidence-based summer learning and enrichment programs. Services must be provided: 

  • During periods of time when school is not in session;
  • Be uniquely designed to meet the local needs of students; and
  • Focus on providing direct services for students who experienced greater disruptions to learning and did not engage consistently in school during the pandemic.
