Title:  21st Century Community Learning Centers (21st CCLC) inititative
Agency / Organization:  AfterSchool Alliance
Description:  The 21st Century Community Learning Centers (21st CCLC) initiative is the only federal funding source dedicated exclusively to before-school, afterschool and summer learning programs. Each state education agency receives funds based on its share of Title I funding for low-income students at high-poverty, low performing schools. Funds are also allocated to territories and the Bureau of Indian Affairs. 21st CCLC programs provide: • Academic enrichment activities that help students meet state and local achievement standards; • A broad array of additional services designed to reinforce and complement the regular academic program, such as drug and violence prevention programs, career and technical programs, counseling programs, art, music, recreation programs, STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) programs, and character education programs; and literacy and related educational development services to the families of children who are served in the program.
