NC Alliance of YMCAs Administers New Learning Loss and Enrichment Grants Program
In May 2021, the NC General Assembly passed and Governor Cooper signed into law S172, which ended a remote learning grant program effective May 31, 2021, and announced a new grant program to serve the needs of children who have suffered learning loss during the pandemic.
The funds for the new program are drawn from unspent funds in the remote learning grant program, rather than additional new funding.
The new grant period is June 1-December 31, 2021.
Thirty-three community-based organizations operating 193 sites providing learning loss and enrichment were granted a total of $3,258,126 for summer and fall programs.
