Grant available to fund summer enrichment programs for local students

Published on February 21, 2022


On Feb. 8, the San Mateo County Board of Supervisors approved $3.3 million to create the summer 2022 Enrichment Program. Enrichment Programs focus on developing the academic, social, emotional and physical needs and interests of students through hands-on, engaging learning experiences. Such programs introduce students to learning opportunities and materials, encouraging them to develop new interests and build new skills.

This grant program is for providers that commit to using grant funds to:

  • Expand access to summer enrichment programs for low-income and vulnerable students;
  • Support the social-emotional well-being of students to mitigate the setbacks and hardships associated with COVID-19; and
  • Provide opportunities for students to re-inspire and propel learning to counterbalance learning loss attributed to the COVID-19 pandemic and distance learning.

Multisite agencies may submit one application for all programs. Applicants must submit an online application and their program budget spreadsheet (by program site) by 5 p.m. Friday, Feb. 25. Awarded grant amounts may vary and will be scaled to reflect program capacity and ability to expand program access to targeted students.
