Public School Opportunities Enhancement Grant Program

The Public School Opportunities Enhancement Program (PSOEP) grant program assists local education agencies (LEAs), public community schools, and nonprofit [501(c)(3)] organizations in the State to establish partnerships designed to expand or create extended day and summer enhancement programs and support existing educational programming during the school day. Extended day and summer enhancement programs are educational and recreational enrichment programs for children between the ages of four and 19 that take place:

  • Before and after the school day;
  • On weekends and holidays; and
  • During vacations and summer breaks.
