Over $10 million will be allocated to 45 out-of-school learning programs, including 16 new to the program, and 29 that have been renewed. The 21st CCLC grant is continued through implementation of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). Twenty-first CCLC funds help support local programs providing a safe and enriching learning environment to bolster regular school-day learning and programming. In addition, parent, family, and community engagement activities also receive support. Funding is made available to support the awarded programs, students, and staff for the next four years.
