The Alliance Partnership received an $850,000 grant from The Ohio Department of Education to support afterschool programs in two locations – Alliance Neighborhood Center and Alliance Middle School – over the next five years.

The grant came after The Twenty-First Century Partnership in Canton met with the Alliance Partnership to share and discuss their experience with obtaining their Ohio Department of Education grant for an afterschool program. After a few more contacts and discussions about how to write the grant and agree to a true partnership-the grant was written. The success story began when the announcement came in June that the Alliance Partnership received the funding.
