21st Century Community Learning Centers-Elementary & Middle Schools


Note: The due date for the request for applications has passed. This page is for reference and administration of funding.

The purpose of the 21st Century Community Learning Centers(CCLC)–Elementary & Middle Schools program is to support the creation of community learning centers that provide academic enrichment opportunities during non-school hours for children, particularly students who attend high-poverty and low-performing schools. The program helps students meet state and local student standards in core academic subjects, such as reading and math; offers students a broad array of enrichment activities that can complement their regular academic programs; and offers educational services to the families of participating children. Programs must operate during every regular school day and may operate during summer, weekends, intercession, or vacation periods.
