The president’s fiscal year 2021 budget does not propose any direct changes to the federally funded Afterschool Meal and Snack Programs. These child nutrition programs, like the National School Lunch Program, the School Breakfast Program, and the Summer Nutrition Programs, are federal entitlement programs and are not part of the president’s proposal for the discretionary budget. The proposed budget does, however, zero out funding for the Nita M. Lowey 21st Century Community Learning Centers (21st CCLC), the largest federal funding source for operations of afterschool and summer programs.
