Leveraging State & Federal Recovery Funds for OST

LRF for MOST

With the passage of the American Rescue Plan Act on March 11th, 2021, an unprecedented amount of funds will soon be in the hands of local education agencies all across the country to address learning gaps created and accelerated by the covid-19 pandemic. Of this, nearly $30 billion has been allocated for use by out of school time programs over the next 3 years.

We at MOST recognize the historic nature of this opportunity and are working hard to facilitate collaboration among the many stakeholders involved in this process, from program providers and local governments, to students, parents, and teachers. This page will be updated in the coming weeks to reflect the directives issued by government agencies at the federal, state, and local levels as to how this money can be spent.
