Grant Description
Grants to New Hampshire LEAs partnering with community-based or faith-based organizations, or with other agencies or organizations to provide programming for K-12 students. Funding is intended to support educational and recreational opportunities for students attending high-poverty schools.

The goal of the 21st CCLC program is to raise student academic achievement through the creation and expansion of community learning centers that provide students with academic enrichment opportunities as well as additional activities designed to complement their regular academic program. Families of 21st CCLC youth participants also have access to educational development opportunities through the program. Centers can be located in elementary, middle or secondary schools or similarly accessible facilities. They provide a range of high quality services to support student learning and development, including tutoring and mentoring, homework help, academic enrichment (e.g., hands-on science or technology programs), and community service opportunities, as well as music, arts, sports and cultural activities.

Authorized under Title IV B, of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) as amended by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), the specific purposes of the law are to:

  • Provide opportunities for academic enrichment, including tutorial services to help students, particularly those who attend low-performing schools, meet state and local student performance standards in core academic subjects like reading and mathematics.
  • Offer students a broad array of additional services, programs, and activities designed to reinforce and complement the regular academic program of participating students.
  • Offer families of students served by community learning centers, opportunities for literacy education and related educational development.
