MADISON — Gov. Tony Evers announced Wednesday that $6.6 million in COVID-19 Out-of-School Support Grants have been awarded to 42 Wisconsin organizations providing care to school-aged kids during the pandemic.

tony-evers“These out-of-school support providers are a critical part of ensuring Wisconsin kids have access to high-quality programming and a safe place to go,” said Gov. Evers. “The pandemic has had a tremendous impact on our kids, and these organizations have stepped up in a big way to make sure they have the support they need to stay resilient.”

Funded by the federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act funds and administered by the Wisconsin Department of Administration (DOA), the COVID-19 Out-of-School Support Grant 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.

“These organizations are lifelines for so many families and children,” said DOA Secretary Joel Brennan. “Investing in their financial stability will undoubtedly contribute to a quicker recovery for Wisconsin’s communities and families.”
