|New Round of 21st Century Community Learning Center Grants Available|
|SALEM – Today the Oregon Department of Education (ODE) has opened the next competition for $9.5 million in funds for 21st Century Community Learning Center (CCLC) grants. This 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. The program helps students meet state and local standards in core academic subjects such as reading and math, provides students with a broad array of enrichment activities that can complement their regular academic programs, and offers literacy and other educational services to the families of participating children.
Eligible entities include, but are not limited to, school districts, education service districts, community colleges, faith-based and community organizations, charter schools and city and county agencies. Schools and community organizations are encouraged to apply as partners.
The 21st CCLC 2013 request for proposal and application are posted on ODE’s 21st CCLC website: http://www.ode.state.or.us/search/results/?id=108

Completed grant applications must be received at ODE by 5:00 PM on Tuesday June 4, 2013. Successful proposals will be funded as of July 1, 2013. All awards are pending receipt of federal funds.
