Purpose

21st Century Community Learning Centers

Under The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) of 2015 the 21st Century Community Learning Centers (21st CCLC) program provides grants to LEAs and community learning centers to offer academic enrichment activities for students in low performing schools during non-school hours or when school is not in session (before and after school and during summer break). The 21st CCLC program is a reauthorized program from ESEA/NCLB with some additional uses for the funds. In ESSA, 21st CCLC funds can be used for expanded learning activities before, during or after the school day in cases where at least 300 hours are added during the school year and do not take the place of regular school day requirements. Local grant recipients may also use the funding to offer programs to promote family engagement, family literacy, tutoring services, well-rounded education opportunities, mentoring programs and healthy and active lifestyles programs, among other programs.
