21st Century Community Learning Centers

Michigan 21st Century Community Learning Centers logo Soaring Beyond Expectations



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 68 grants with 259 sites in 20 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 320,000 students have been served since the inception of the program in 2001.

NEW 2019-2020 Cohort L Competition Results UPDATED 5-30-19
The Michigan Department of Education received proposals requesting over $36 million. The review process was uniformly applied to all proposals, and recommendations for funding were based on those reviews. Many excellent proposals could not be funded. Michigan's total 21st CCLC allocation fluctuates based on a formula that includes population, poverty and Title I allocations. The allocation for the 2019-2020 competition was reduced by nearly $2 million from the prior year, thus the number of grants/sites that could be funded was reduced.
