Thank you to our community partners who participated in the Summer Grant Program!
Summer Grant Reporting:
In early April 2022, the Oregon Legislature allocated $50 million for community-based organizations to provide summer learning opportunities, administered through the Oregon Community Summer Grants (OCSG) Initiative by Oregon Association of Education Service Districts (OAESD). As part of the initiative, Region 16 Comprehensive Center on behalf of Oregon Department of Education and in partnership with OAESD hired OregonASK to support reporting on the OCSG Initiative.
This report (download below) explores the impact of OCSG funds, seeking to highlight the lived experiences from the initiative, summarize the impact of grant dollars, discuss challenges and barriers in the OCSG process, and present recommendations for the future. All findings contained in this report are drawn directly from the required grant reporting form and through feedback from grantees.
