About Us

The 21st Century Community Learning Centers (CCLC) program is the only federal funding source dedicated to supporting afterschool and local summer learning programs through the US Department of Education. The Elementary and Secondary Education Act, now known as the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), updated and reauthorized the 21st CCLC program in December 2015. Each state receives funds based on its share of Title I funding for low-income students. Grants support afterschool and summer learning programs that provide the following services to students attending high-poverty, low-performing schools:

  • Academic enrichment activities that can help students meet state and local achievement standards.
  • A broad array of additional services designed to reinforce and complement the regular academic program, such as: drug and violence prevention programs, counseling programs, art, music, and recreation programs, technology education programs, and character education programs.
  • Literacy and related educational development services to the families of children who are served in the program.

The services and programs provided by the New York State 21st Community Learning Centers are a collaborative effort among five primary entities: The New York State Education Department, The New York City Technical Assistance Resource Center (part of the New York City Department of Education), The Rest of State Technical Assistance Resource Center (part of Ulster BOCES), the State Evaluator (Measurement Incorporated) and 21st CCLC funded Grantees throughout the state.
