Lottery for Education: Afterschool Programs in Hancock County
The overall goal of LEAPS is to provide Tennessee students with academic enrichment opportunities that reinforce and compliment their regular academic program. In November 2002 Tennesseans voted to create a state lottery. The General Assembly established that profits from the lottery go to specific educational programs: college scholarships, early childhood programs and after school programs.
As provided under TCA 49-6-702, 100 percent of monies constituting an unclaimed prize shall be deposited into an after school account for the purpose of administering a system of competitive grants and technical assistance for eligible organizations providing after school educational services within Tennessee.
