The funding landscape of out-of-school time programs in the District of Columbia: Sources of funds, uses of funds, and financing gaps [Executive summary]

To ensure that subsidized OST capacity can effectively meet local families' needs, it is necessary to understand how OST programs are funded, what costs OST providers face, how prices are structured for families, and how prices intersect with quality, content, hours, and other program characteristics. This report meets this need by surveying the fiscal landscape of subsidized OST programs, reviewing the sources of funds (where OST programs get resources) and uses of funds (how OST programs spend money). In both these sections, the report provides detailed information on public funding and spending, and estimated revenue--including private revenue--and expenditure analysis for service providers. The report explores the potential fiscal needs of expanding OST programs, opportunities that are available to expand and better use existing funds, and the bottlenecks that might impair expansion efforts.
