21st CCLC is a federally-funded competitive grant program designed to support the establishment of community learning centers serving students in high need school buildings. Funding is provided by the Federal government through the No Child Left Behind Act, Every Student Succeeds Act, and is administered by the Nebraska Department of Education.
These grants are awarded to projects that offer a broad array of services, programs and activities during non-school hours or periods when school is not in session (such as afterschool or during summer recess). The three goals for this grant program are to: improve overall student success and learning performance in one or more academic areas through academic support and enrichment activities, increase social benefits and positive behavioral changes, and increase active and meaningful family and community engagement in supporting students’ education.
