The grant is part of nearly $4 million in funding aimed at expanding access to extended learning across the state.
The ONE|NB grant of $77,530 will be used for expanding after-school programming at William D’Abate Elementary School for greater continuity throughout the school year and to provide additional services for families at risk of or to divert homelessness.

The grants are funded through the state’s allocation of the American Rescue Plan Act’s set-aside funding for elementary and secondary school relief.
“To improve student outcomes, we are focused on shifting learning in Rhode Island from the traditional 180 school days to 365 days of learning, and we’re making the strategic investments to make it happen,” said Governor Dan McKee.
