On behalf of the New York Life Foundation, the Afterschool Alliance invites out-of-school time
programs to apply for the Aim High grant opportunity to support and bolster the ability of afterschool and summer learning programs to help prepare middle school students for success in high school, college, and life. This competitive grant program includes both one- and two-year grant opportunities. Applicants can only apply for one of these grants. The one-year grants focus on supporting programs’ racial equity and social justice efforts; they begin in June 2022 and end in May 2023. Two-year grants  focus on supporting programs in enhancing direct service activities, technical assistance, capacity building, and their efforts to continue serving youth while facing the challenges of the pandemic and beyond. The two-year grants begin in June 2022 and end in May 2024.
