About this webinar:

Many afterschool providers are struggling to provide opportunities for young people and families in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, and financial assistance and flexibility is often needed. In this webinar, we will talk through opportunities included in the three major COVID-19 response bills, as well as a glimpse into what's proposed for the next round of legislation. This session will cover education funding, school-age child care funding, nutrition assistance and afterschool meals, and nonprofit/small business loans and support.
