Community Development Block Grant is funding provided to the City by the federal government. These funds are designed to benefit low to moderate-income individuals who reside in the City of Dallas. A percentage of these funds are earmarked for public service activities such as after school and summer programs.
The City of Dallas Park and Recreation Department provides free Out of School Time (OST) programs at multiple Dallas Elementary Schools via our Community Development Block Grant. OST programs operate according to the DISD calendar and operate from 3pm-6pm on normal school days.
In addition to a healthy snack and homework assistance, youth will experience a variety of daily activities including arts, sports, fitness, life skills, games. Our OST is designed to offer effective academic enrichment, physical fitness, nutritional and life skill programs to challenge children and make learning fun.
