Cuomo Announces $158K Grant For Chautauqua Opportunities

ALBANY – Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo recently announced $10.9 million in new grants for 68 Advantage After School Programs across New York state. These grants will provide thousands of school-age children with three hours of after school care every weekday during the regular school year. Through these grants, children will have access to extra academic programming through age-appropriate activities that will help prepare them for life after graduation.
