Nita M. Lowey 21st Century Community Learning Centers Program
21st Century Community Learning Centers
The Nita M. Lowey 21st Century Community Learning Centers (CCLC) Program supports 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. OSPI oversees the administration of the federal grant, Title IV Part B, which funds 21st Century programs for our students.
The Nita M. Lowey 21st CCLC grant awards are up to five years, contingent upon federal funding. Programs must show progress in implementing the project goals and activities as approved in their original grant proposal. No grant is less than $100,000, and no grant will exceed $500,000.
