Title IV, Part B: 21st Century Community Learning Center (CCLC) Grants

Overview

The 21st CCLC Program is a competitive federal grant for Local Education Agencies (LEAs) and Community or Faith-Based Organizations (CFBOs) to serve students and their families attending schools with poverty levels of 40 percent or higher outside of regular school hours.

Authorized under Title IV, Part B, of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), the program's specific purposes are to:

  1. provide opportunities for academic enrichment, including providing tutorial services to help students (particularly students in high-poverty areas and those who attend low-performing schools) meet State and local student performance standards in core academic subjects such as reading and mathematics;
  2. 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, and recreation programs, technology education programs, and character education programs, that are designed to reinforce and complement the regular academic program of participating students; and
  3. offer families of students served by community learning centers opportunities for literacy and related educational development

Currently, Utah has over thirty 21st CCLC grants, serving over 100 individual school or community sites and over 6,000 students statewide.
