State Awards $24 Million to More Than 80 Organizations for Extended School Day and School Violence Prevention Programs

The State Education Department awarded more than $24 million in state-funded grants for extended school day and school violence prevention programs to 83 school districts and non-profit organizations across the state, Commissioner Betty A. Rosa announced today. The grants will be administered over a five-year period, from July 1, 2021 to June 30, 2026.

“As we prepare for students to return to school in September, we anticipate that some may require not only additional academic enrichment but also access to social and emotional resources,” said Board of Regents Chancellor Lester W. Young, Jr.  “The grants we’re awarding today will play a critical role toward protecting and enriching students across the state post-pandemic and beyond.”

“We know that when children are safe and engaged in after school programs, they will be better positioned to succeed academically,” said Commissioner Rosa. “We are extremely grateful to Governor Cuomo, Speaker Heastie, Majority Leader Stewart-Cousins and the Legislature for providing the financial resources for these grants to prevent violence and to keep our students involved in safe and educational activities.” 

The awarded grants range from $44,000 to $350,000. School districts and not-for-profit organizations working in collaboration with public school districts were eligible to apply for grant funding. SED received 278 applications requesting more than $75 million in funding. Each application was evaluated and scored by peer reviewers, including experts in expanded learning opportunities; college and university faculty and administrators; professional program evaluators; community educators; community service providers; staff from foundations and charitable organizations, as well as SED staff.

Eligible programs provide support to students through extended school day activities and/or school safety programs which promote violence prevention.  Extended school day programs will increase student achievement, provide extracurricular enrichment activities and assist in preventing school violence. School violence prevention activities include comprehensive school-based intervention models that reduce violence and improve school safety as well as funding for safe corridors, diversity programs and collaboration with law enforcement agencies or community-based organizations.

Approximately $24.3 million is expected to be available annually statewide, contingent upon annual state budget appropriations. Each application may include a request for an annual grant award of a maximum of $350,000. Agencies applying for multiple grants were limited to a maximum annual award of $1.2 million.
