garden_psIf you’re looking for the opportunity to recharge your afterschool or out-of-school time program, now’s the time.  The City of Houston just announced $495,000 in funding throughout the 11 council districts through a program called “City Connections.”

Nonprofits are chosen to work within existing or new programs. Programs can be held in schools, community centers or faith-based organizations or civic groups.

Services like dance, music, theater or art are offered by the nonprofits. Your students might take piano, violin or mariachi music instruction.  Water safety classes could be the focus of the funding so that students like to swim or benefit from water aerobics. Language classes, gardening, computer courses or arts-and-crafts instruction are other possibilities.

Learn more about getting up to $10,000 in nonprofit programs through the City of Houston’s City Connections which is administered by CASE for Kids, a division of Harris County Department of Education.  Apply through the following link: .
