An Immediate Call to Action

posted Jan 29, 2015, 11:19 AM by Samantha Richard   [ updated Mar 13, 2015, 8:17 AM ]
Recently the elimination of dedicated 21st CCLC funding has been proposed. The draft Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) reauthorization bill put forth by Senate HELP Committee Chairman Lamar Alexander (R-TN) last week would eliminate the dedicated 21st CCLC funding for afterschool, before-school and summer learning programs.
 In New Hampshire alone, we serve over 10,000 children and youth from communities in the greatest need without turning away students based on ability to pay. We work towards building stronger communities and community partnerships to improve student academic success and help working families.

Absence of the 21st CCLC funding would directly impact the services we provide to the students of Manchester, NH.
