School districts are invited to apply for a 21st Century Community Learning Centers (21st CCLC) grant.
The learning centers are intended to assist students from high-poverty and low-performing schools in need of additional support by providing academic enrichment opportunities and activities designed to complement regular school instruction.
The grants must specifically support programs offered outside of regular school hours.
“Students served by 21st Century Community Learning Centers get to have fun while participating in highly enriching programming that serves as a strong supplement to their daily school work.”
Districts must first complete and submit a Notice of Intent to Apply form by Friday, January 19.
Following submission of the Notice of Intent to Apply, districts will receive the information needed to access the 21st CCLC grant’s online system with the deadline to complete the grant application by Friday, March 2. All applications must be completed online; no paper applications will be accepted.
Grant award amounts range from $50,000 to $150,000 per year, and the length of a grant is five years. Funding comes from the federal government in the form of formula grants to the states.
