IDOE announces funded grantees for Cohort 9 of the 21st Century Community Learning Centers (21st CCLC) Program
IDOE is pleased to announce the awarding of $8.4 million to 38 applicants for out-of-school learning, including 10 grantees new to the 21st CCLC program. In order to determine the successful applicants, each application received at least 3 scores from external peer reviewers with direct experience in out-of-school programming. This year’s opportunity was incredibly competitive and we thank each applicant for their efforts. A list of awarded programs and further information are posted on the IDOE 21st CCLC website.


The 21st Century Community Learning Centers (CCLC) program is a federally-funded program that provides at-risk students a safe environment during non-school hours. This program may have one or multiple centers/sites which may be located in schools, community facilities, or faith-based facilities. All centers must provide a range of high-quality services to support regular school-day academics and development, including, but not limited to: tutoring and mentoring, academic enrichment (e.g. homework assistance, reading, math, science, and technology programs), service learning, character education, physical education and recreational activities, and dropout prevention. The 21st CCLC program must also engage adult family members in actively participating with students through educational and personal development opportunities.
