21st CCLC Application

The 21st Century Community Learning Centers (21st CCLC) program is authorized under Title IV, Part B, of the Every Student Succeeds Act. The program is designed to provide academic enrichment opportunities, art, music, recreation, sports, drug and violence prevention and youth development activities to students during non-school hours. The program also offers families of students served by community learning centers opportunities for educational development. The amount of federal funds from the U.S. Department of Education to States for this program is determined by population.

The State Department of Education (SDE) conducts grant competition as funding allows. Successful applicants receive funding for up to five years. Eligible applicants include school districts, municipalities, community based organizations, faith-based organizations and private corporations.

The SDE requires all entities planning on submitting an application complete a Letter of Intent to Apply, linked on the left. This allows the SDE to add the organization to the application system, which is required for access. If you have questions contact SDE 21st CCLC Program at 208-332-6800.
