Two-Year Opportunity Grant

The Expanded Learning Opportunity Grant Program Act was created by the Nebraska Legislature to promote academic achievement in high-need schools during out-of-school time afterschool and during summer break.  Beginning July 1, 2016, one percent of proceeds from the Nebraska Lottery are transferred to this fund.  A competition for Two-Year Opportunity Grants was held in summer 2017.  These grants require a partnership contributing a 1:1 match of the grant award.  Partnerships must include a school district and at least one community-based organization, agency or business.  Eligible afterschool sites must be receiving funding from a 21st Century Community Learning Center (21st CCLC) Continuation Grant.  Thirteen grants were awarded which will provide programming at 43 afterschool sites during the 2017-18 and 2018-19 school years. 

Grant recipients include:

* Award amounts subject to finalization of grant budget.
