Annual Report of Executive Committee to General Assembly due Dec. 31 (Chapter 586, Acts of 1999; Code 1957, Art. 41, sec. 6-805).

In 1999, the Advisory Board on After-School Opportunity Programs was established (Chapter 586, Acts of 1999). To address the issue of children left unsupervised after school, the Maryland After-School Opportunity Act created a fund, a program, and an executive committee, as well as the Board. In consultation with the Board and the Executive Committee, the Department of Human Resources administered the Maryland After-School Opportunity Fund. From the Fund, grants are awarded for after-school opportunity programs by the Executive Committee in consultation with the Board (Code 1957, Art. 41, secs. 6-801 through 6-807; Code Education Article, secs. 7-1201 through 7-1207).

On December 30, 1999, the Board issued its first comprehensive plan for the Maryland After-School Opportunity Fund Program. The first request for proposals was distributed to local jurisdictions through local management boards in February 2000. In order to receive funding, each local jurisdiction is expected to develop a comprehensive after-school program network with significant community input.

The Advisory Board last met in 2001. Due to budget constraints, the Maryland After-School Opportunity Fund was partially funded in FY2004, and not funded at all in FY2005.
