The After School Education and Safety (ASES) Program is the result of the 2002 voter-approved initiative, Proposition 49. These programs are created through partnerships between schools and local community resources to provide literacy, academic enrichment and safe, constructive alternatives for students in kindergarten through ninth grade. Funding is designed to:
- maintain existing before and after school program funding
- provide eligibility to all elementary and middle schools that submit quality applications throughout California.
The Renewal application is for existing grant recipients who wish to continue funding at existing levels. The Universal application is for new applicants and for existing grant recipients who wish to increase funding. Approximately $5 million in funding is available for ASES Universal grants. The remaining funds are obligated for on-going grants funded via the Renewal application. ASES funding is allocated based on a figure $7.50 per student proposed to be served, per day.
