Afterschool Care Program

The Georgia Division of Family Children Services (DFCS) announced the release of the Afterschool Care Program Statement of Need (SoN) for Federal Fiscal Year (FFY) 2019 on March 1st, 2018. The Afterschool Care Program is seeking proposals from non-profit organizations and public agencies that provide quality out-of-school time programs and services to youth between the ages of 5 and 17.

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.

Please note that all organizations and agencies who would like to submit an application MUST attend an information session on March 7th or 27th. Learn more from our email blast about the SoN and info sessions here. If you have questions about the Afterschool Care Program, please email afterschool@dhs.ga.gov.
