OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — After-school programs are a great way to keep kids learning, engaged and taken care of when parents can't watch them. The Nebraska Department of Education (NDE) says programs will soon be available at 48 sites thanks to grants made possible by the Nebraska Lottery.

The NDE says the Expanded Learning Opportunity Grant Program, created by the Nebraska Legislature, is intended:

"To promote academic achievement in high-need schools during out-of-school time after school and during summer break. Grant amounts will range from $10,000-$30,000 and applicants are required to have a one-to-one funding match. Eligible sites operate quality afterschool programs funded by a 21st Century Community Learning Center federal grant and have been in operation at least five years."
