We need you to act today to save the only federal funding for afterschool. The current Senate draft to reauthorize the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) eliminates the funding for 21st Century Community Learning Center (21st CCLC). We have until February 2 for public comments on the draft bill. More on the draft ESEA bill and impact on 21st CCLC can be found here.
Send a letter to Pennsylvania's federal senators asking them to support 21st CCLC. Click here to download the letter to send to Senator Casey and click here to download the letter to send to Senator Toomey. Please sign, print your full name and address, and mail into the senators' local offices by Monday, February 2. You can also email the committee at firstname.lastname@example.org expressing your concerns about the elimination of 21st Century funding by Monday, February 2.
APOST will keep you updated as the draft bill is put forth by the House in the coming weeks. Contact us with any questions regarding this bill and what it means moving forward at email@example.com.
