The campaign to increase the After School Education and Safety (ASES) daily rate is led by the California Afterschool Advocacy Alliance (CA3). CA3 is an alliance of afterschool providers and advocacy organizations that are dedicated to promoting legislative and administrative policies that enhance the quality and accessibility of afterschool programs. CalSAC is a proud supporter of the campaign and is committed to engaging the field in advocating for increased funding for afterschool programs.
In June 2017, the California afterschool and expanded learning field won big, increasing funding for the first time in a decade. However, the increase only goes halfway in meeting the needs of the field, and federal afterschool funding continues to be threatened.
