Review of the American Rescue Plan Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief Funds in support of out-of-school time programming: Understanding state fund distribution models


To investigate the different approaches states used to expend these funds, Metis Associates conducted a systematic review of all 52 ARPA ESSER recipients. This was followed by individual outreach to Statewide Afterschool Networks (SANs) across the country that were identified as having a grant administration model most relevant to that used by Georgia. Specifically, this review focuses on determining which states have: (1) created grant competitions to distribute summer and afterschool funds; (2) partnered with their statewide afterschool network (SAN) to handle various administrative and training components of the grant competition; and (3) excluded local education agencies (LEAs) as eligible applicants—generally as part of a broader effort to reach underserved groups and organizations that have not otherwise benefited from public pandemic relief funds.
