Afterschool Care Program Statement of Need (SoN)


The Afterschool Care Program within the Georgia Division of Family and Children Services (DFCS) provides federal funding to non-profit organizations and public agencies who serve youth and families during the out-of-school time. To be eligible, programs must serve youth and families within low-to-moderate income communities and the foster care system.

The goals of the DFCS Afterschool Care Program are to:

  • Strengthen youth-serving organizations and institutions by providing funding that increases their capacity to design, implement, and sustain quality youth development programs and services;
  • Provide opportunities for youth to establish positive relationships with their peers and caring adults during traditional non-school day hours; and
  • Provide technical assistance to organizations and agencies as they implement services and activities that support their youth’s overall well-being as they prepare for and transition into young adulthood.

If you have questions about the Afterschool Care Program, please email afterschool@dhs.ga.gov .

The deadline for FFY16 applications has passed. Stay tuned for the release of the FFY17 SoN on DFCS’ website.
