Grants to California school districts, charter schools, county offices of education, and eligible special needs schools for after-school enrichment programming for students in kindergarten through grade 9. Funding is intended for collaborations between schools and communities that offer literacy, academic enrichment, and safe, constructive alternatives for K-9 students.
Funding is designed to maintain existing before and after school program funding; and provide eligibility to all elementary and middle schools that submit quality applications throughout California. The application is for new grantees as well as existing grant recipients who wish to increase funding.

The ASES grantees shall develop and maintain documentation of the ASES Program Plan for a minimum of five years after the conclusion of the program. The Program Plan includes, but is not limited to, program goals, program content, and any other information requested by the CDE. The ASES Program Plan must be developed through a collaborative process that includes parents, youth, representatives of participating public school sites, governmental agencies, such as city and county parks and recreation departments, local law enforcement, community organizations, and the private sector. Current ASES grantees applying for an increase in funding or additional sites, are not required to submit a Program Plan as part of the RFA submission. The development, revision and submission of a Program Plan is required as part of the ASES grant renewal process. The Program Plan must be reviewed by the grantee every three years.
