Last Updated:



These ASES programs are created through partnerships between schools and local community resources to provide literacy, academic enrichment and safe, constructive alternatives for students in kindergarten through ninth grade. Funding is designed to: (1) maintain existing before and after school program funding; and (2) provide eligibility to all elementary and middle schools that submit quality applications throughout California.


The After School Education and Safety (ASES) Program is the result of the 2002 voter-approved initiative, Proposition 49. The application is for new grantees as well as existing grant recipients who wish to increase funding.

Available Funding Notes:

Due to the suspension of the FY 2022–23 grant reductions process due to COVID 19, the amount of ASES funding available for FY 2024–25 is estimated to be around $2 million based solely on school closures and site cancellations. This significantly lowered the amount available for funding making this grant funding year an extremely more competitive process than previous years.
