21st Century Community Learning Centers (CCLC) Program  


The 21st Century Community Learning Centers (CCLC) program is authorized under Title IV, Part B, of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA), as amended by the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001. The No Child Left Behind Act converted the 21st CCLC program from a discretionary grant program, administered directly by the U.S. Department of Education (ED), to a program in which each state educational agency (SEA) receives an allotment under a formula based on its share of Title I, Part A funds.  States must use their allocations to make competitive awards to eligible entities.  The Secretary may reserve up to one percent of the total appropriation for the 21st CCLC program to carry out an array of national activities, including (but not limited to) national evaluations, and technical assistance activities.
The primary goal of the 21st CCLC program is to enable community learning centers to plan, implement, or expand before or afterschool learning enrichment opportunities to help students meet state and local academic standards in core content areas.  21st CCLC programs must primarily serve children who attend high poverty schools and priority must be given to serving children in low-performing schools.
The overarching goal of the 21st CCLC program is to provide funds to eligible entities to enable them to establish or expand activities in community learning centers that:

  • Provide opportunities for academic enrichment, including providing tutorial services to help students, particularly students who attend low-performing schools, to meet state and local student academic achievement standards in core academic subjects, such as reading and mathematics
  • Offer students a broad array of additional services, programs, and activities, such as youth development activities, drug and violence prevention programs, counseling programs, art, music, recreation programs, technology education programs, and character education programs, that are designed to reinforce and complement the regular academic program of participating students
  • Offer families of students served by community learning centers opportunities for literacy and related educational development.

21st CCLC grant funds shall be used to carry out a broad array of before and/or afterschool activities (including afterschool, before school, evenings, weekends, holidays, summers, or other school vacation periods) that advance student achievement. Programs will provide a broad array of activities to help students meet state and local student performance standards in core academic subjects, of at least, but not limited to, reading/language arts, mathematics, and science.  Programs are limited to providing activities within the following list:

  • Remedial education activities
  • Mathematics and reading/language arts education activities
  • Science, arts, and music education activities
  • Entrepreneurial education programs
  • Tutoring services (including those provided by senior citizen volunteers) and mentoring programs
  • Programs that provide afterschool activities for limited English proficient      students that emphasize language skills and academic achievement
  • Recreational activities
  • Telecommunications and technology education programs
  • Expanded library service hours
  • Programs that promote parental involvement and family literacy
  • Programs that provide assistance to students who have been truant, suspended, or expelled to allow the students to improve their academic achievement
  • Programs in drug and violence prevention, counseling, character education, and service-learning
  • Health/nutritional activities.
