Greeley is expanding it's after-school program, thanks to a grant. Greeley-Evans School District 6 will expand the program to more schools starting next year.

A grant from the federal government for $2.2 million will add programs to East Memorial, Billie Martinez, Maplewood and Romero elementary schools.

The 21st CCLC program helps students, particularly those who attend high-poverty schools, meet state and local standards in core academic subjects, offers students a broad array of enrichment activities that can complement their regular academic programs and offers literacy and other educational services to the families of participating children.
