Yesterday, Indiana’s Office of Early Childhood and Out-of-School Learning awarded 22 grants from the School-Age Child Care Project Fund to school corporations and nonprofit organizations that offer care to school-age children. The grants, which total more than $1.53 million through the 2020 – 2021 school years, went to 22 public school corporations or nonprofit organizations that offer care to school-age children (ages 5 through 14), before or after the school day and when school is not in session. The recipients were chosen from a competitive field and represent 41 school-age child care sites in 14 Indiana counties. The grants supplement program costs in four areas: program enrichment, equipment, staffing and staff development. School corporations or nonprofit organizations that offer care to school-age children, before or after the school day, when school is not in session, or when school is in session for students who are enrolled in a half-day kindergarten program, were eligible to apply for this grant. All applicants were also required to be licensed and/or meet CCDF Provider Eligibility Standards.
