COVID-19 Out-of-School Support Grant Program

Out-of-school support providers are a critical part of the team of entities ensuring Wisconsin kids are getting what they need, whether their traditional school setting is in-person or virtual this year. What’s best for our kids is what’s best for our state, and these organizations are stepping up in a big way to make sure our kids have a safe place to go during this unprecedented pandemic.

Governor Tony Evers has directed $10 million for the COVID-19 Out-of-School Support Grant Program to assist Wisconsin organizations who are providing care to school-aged kids during the pandemic. The program provides eligible organizations grant awards to cover pandemic-related impacts such as lost revenue, increased staffing costs, cleaning and sanitization, and additional costs to ensure high-quality programming otherwise impacted by COVID-19.
