Area students wont be able to take part in an educational summer program this year because of a lack of grant funding.
SAFE BASE, an afterschool program in its 19th year, will not offer summer programs, assistant director Eileen Wille said. The program is funded entirely by state and federal grants, and no grants could be found for the summer program.
Its really disappointing for us. We love our summer programs, Wille said. Theres just not money out there for it.
