New Resources from the Afterschool Investments Project†
The Afterschool Investments Project (AIP), a service of the Office of Child Care, provides technical assistance to Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) grantees and other state and local leaders to support afterschool efforts. AIP is pleased to announce several new resources on the project website: http://nccic.acf.hhs.gov/afterschool/.
†New State and Territory Afterschool Profiles
AIP has added territories to its State Afterschool Profiles series, which provides a snapshot of the “state of afterschool” in every state and territory as well as an opportunity to compare afterschool activities across the country. Profiles highlight key data and descriptions of the afterschool landscape, which include a range of out-of-school time programming that can occur before and after school, on weekends, and during summer months. Profiles are searchable by state/territory or type of initiative –including professional development, financing, and other topics. Updated profiles for all fifty states, five territories, and the District of Columbia are now available at: http://nccic.acf.hhs.gov/afterschool/statep.html.
†Users can also access key national school-age data through the National Afterschool Profile, available at: http://nccic.acf.hhs.gov/afterschool/PDFDocs/National.pdf.
†Interactive State-by-State Comparison Tables
Drawing from information found in the State and Territory Afterschool Profile series, this new interactive feature includes data for all states, territories, and the District of Columbia, when available. Users can view individual state data or compare data across multiple states/territories (max 10) or for all states within two Regions at a time. This section offers users the ability to compare data between states or ACF Regions for the following data categories: school-age population, Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) dollars received, percent of children receiving CCDF that are school-age, settings for school-age children, and provider reimbursement rate information. The tables can be accessed at: http://nccic.acf.hhs.gov/afterschool/sbscomp/index.cfm?do=viewSbsCompTweet
