21st Century Community Learning Centers

The 21st Century Community Learning Centers (21st CCLC) Grants are awarded through a competitive process to local and intermediate school districts, universities, and other public or private community-based agencies, organizations, and programs, including faith-based organizations.  These grant programs provide comprehensive community learning center services.  Currently, there are 73 grants with 277 sites in 24 counties.  Each site serves one or more schools.  Grants are targeted at high-priority and low-income schools.  Students must be offered after-school and summer programming for a minimum of four days a week, two and a half hours a day, for 32 weeks per school-year during out-of-school time, and six weeks in the summer.  More than 300,000 students have been served since the inception of the program.   

Michigan's 21st CCLC Program is awaiting approval of the Federal FY 17 Budget and the announcement of State allocations.  It is projected that currently funded programs (Cohorts H & I) will continue to be fully funded for another year.  Cohort J awards will be announced once more information is provided on the 2017-18 allocation.
