Application Assistance

Eligible Applicants

The 21st CCLC program is authorized under Title IV, Part B of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, as amended by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). Grants are awarded through a competitive process to Local Education Agencies (LEAs), Community-Based Organizations (CBOs), Faith-Based Organizations, and other private or public entities, or a consortium of these entities to provide comprehensive community learning center services.

Purpose of Funding

The 21st CCLC grants support the creation of community learning centers that provide academic enrichment opportunities during non-school hours for children, particularly students who attend high-poverty and low-performing schools. The program helps students meet state and local student standards in core academic subjects, such as reading and math; offers students a broad array of enrichment activities that can complement their regular academic programs; and offers literacy and other educational services to the families of participating children.

Oregon’s next competitive application opportunity, scheduled for early 2018, will be based on the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), the ESEA re-authorization signed by the President in December, 2015.

The American Institutes of Research (AIR) completed the statewide evaluation of Oregon 21st CCLC programs in October 2012. Below are found their principal reports from this work:
