New Mexico Public Education Department: Afterschool and Summer Enrichment
Afterschool and Summer Enrichment grants will support the implementation of after school and summer enrichment programs that include the following four components: 1) academic enrichment, 2) physical activity, 3) nutrition education, and 4) Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) and/or English Language Arts (ELA) initiatives and activities. Student transportation costs may be requested if need is identified.
Amount: The anticipated funding and cap per application is up to $51,000 for the duration of one year. It is estimated that up to 21 after school and/or summer programming applicants will be funded.
Eligibility: Eligible applicants include:
- School districts on behalf of one or more schools; applications on behalf of more than one school are considered one application. If a district would like to be considered for full funding for more than one site, then separate applications, by site, are required. Preference is not given to a single-school application or a multiple- school application. Preference is given to quality after school and/or summer programming that reaches the most students.
- Local charter schools.
- State charter schools.
Priority will be given to afterschool programs serving economically disadvantaged students. Eligible schools are those grouped as Community Eligibility Schools (CEP) schools for the 2015-2016 school year that meet CEP criteria as well as those individual schools with 85% or greater free and reduced lunch populations as verified by the New Mexico Public Education Department’s (CSHWB) through the Student Teacher Accountability Reporting System (STARS). A, B, C, D, and F schools are eligible for funding. Geographic representation in determining allocations will be given special consideration.
Schools receiving PED 21st Century Community Learning Center funding are not eligible.Schools receiving PED Title I funding that is specifically utilized for afterschool programming will not be given priority consideration. School districts applying on behalf of one or more schools, local charter schools, and state charter schools may partner with a community-based organization in the provision of after school and/or summer programming. However, the fiscal agent must be the school district, local charter school, or state charter school.
