SEI received one of these grants. The funding will allow SEI to continue expanding its work with out of school time program providers; SEI has been working to align all area out of school time program providers with the same measurements for success along the continuum. ACF has funded this initiative for the past two years, and there are now 60 out of school time providers that have aligned themselves with the continuum.
