Program Quality Enhancement (PQE) Grant

During Utah's 2018 Legislative Session, the Legislature passed Senate Bill 202, which authorized Department of Workforce Services (DWS) and the Utah State Board of Education (USBE) to use up to $125,000 in General Funds to provide grants to promote high quality afterschool programs.

To be eligible to apply for grant funds, organizations must first certify the availability of match funds equal to the amount of grant funds requested.

Additionally, the bill required the Department of Workforce Services and the Utah State Board of Education to work together to set and track academic and enrichment components and quality standards.
