Ask Congress to Reject Cuts to After-School Programs

"More than 1,450 organizations have signed a letter to members of Congress on a key appropriations subcommittee asking that they reject President Trump's plan to cut federal support for after-school programs.

In the letter, the signers request that $1.167 billion be provided for 21st Century Community Learning Centers (21st CCLC), which is the program's current level of funding. These learning centers provide after-school and summer programs for students in low-income communities. President Trump's proposed budget would eliminate the program."
