Resources to Support an Increase in ASES Funding

California’s After School Education and Safety (ASES) programs serve nearly half a million children every day in the highest poverty communities. But without an increase in funding, 1 in 4 programs are likely to close, denying access to 91,000 children.

Save Afterschool is advocating for an additional $112.8 million in state funding, with increases tied to the increasing minimum wage and cost of living. Below you will find messaging documents, funding information, and information about past legislation to help you make the case for adequate funding for California’s publicly funded after school programs.
