Grants are targeted at high-priority and low-income schools. Students must be offered after-school and summer programming for a minimum of four days a week, two and a half hours a day, for 32 weeks per school-year during out-of-school time, and six weeks in the summer. More than 320,000 students have been served since the inception of the program in 2001.
