MAP Urges Baker to Increase Funding for Afterschool

Every January the Governor releases a preliminary budget proposal for the following fiscal year. In anticipation of Governor Baker's FY2019 proposal, MAP has requested increased resources for afterschool and summer learning programs, including the ASOST-Q Grant.

In a letter to Baker, MAP has urged he fund the ASOST-Q Grant at $5.5 million. The increased resources will increase access to high quality afterschool programs for children and youth across Massachusetts. You can read the letter by clicking here.

We urge our readers and partners to sign our petition to Governor Baker and urge him to fund afterschool programs to meet growing demand. You can sign the petition here.
