On Friday March 23, 2018 the U.S. Congress passed the $1.3 trillion FY2018 Omnibus Spending Bill in both the House and the Senate and it was signed by the President. This bill will fund the government for the remainder of the current fiscal year (until October 1, 2018). The Government had been operating on its fifth Continuing Resolution (or CR, a temporary government funding bill).
Good news for after school programs! The Title IV, Part B funding for 21st Century Community Learning Centers (21CCLC), which Trump proposed for elimination in his budget proposal for this year and next, actually received an increase in funding. The 21CCLC funding levels will increase by $20 million to a total of $1.2 Billion.
