21st Century Community Learning Centers



The 2014 21st CCLC competition is now closed.



The 21st Century Community Learning Centers Program is to establish or expand community learning centers that provide students with academic enrichment opportunities along with activities designed to complement the students’ regular academic program.

Centers provide a range of high-quality services to support student learning and development, including tutoring and mentoring, homework help, academic enrichment (such as hands-on science or technology programs), and community service opportunities, as well as music, arts, sports and cultural activities.

Centers must provide academic enrichment activities to students that attend high-poverty or Title 1 school-wide schools to help them meet state and local standards in core subjects especially reading, and mathematics. At the same time, centers help working parents by providing a safe environment for students when school is not in session.



ELIGIBILITY

Eligible applicants are those who primarily serve students and the families of the students of high poverty schools. 21st Century Community Learning Centers Program must be located in public school facilities or in facilities that are at least as available and accessible to the students to be served as if the program were located in a public elementary, middle, or secondary school. Applicants must demonstrate that they meet the statutory program requirements of serving students from schools eligible for school-wide Title I programs or schools with 40% or greater poverty based upon free and reduced lunch as determined using verified information.



CONTACT

Please contact Sue Burgard at 605-773-5238, or Jill Cotton at 605-773-4693 with any questions regarding the 21st Century Community Learning Centers grant or application process.
