ip - ACLs can be configured open ended or focused to spefically toward a particulary port/protocol using the call tcp or udp. refers to the originating scope, in this case the entire subnet.

any refers to the destination scope, in this case any network.

The ACL essentially says - allow any traffic from the source subnet to any destination.
