The 21st Century Community Learning Center (CCLC) grant is a competitive grant authorized under Title IV, Part B of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (P.L. 107-110), as amended by the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001. The 21st CCLC grant is administered by the Oregon Department of Education (ODE) and provides funding for the establishment of community learning centers to provide students with academic enrichment opportunities including tutorial services to help students -- particularly those who attend low-performing schools -- to meet state and local student academic achievement standards in core academic subjects, such as reading and mathematics. In addition to academics, 21st CCLC grant may also offer participants a broad array of other services and programs, such as counseling, character education, entrepreneurial education, drug and violence prevention programming, art, music, recreation activities and technology education. Additional services that promote parental engagement and family literacy instruction must also be provided.

Currently, ODE is administering 21st CCLC grants to a single cohort of 22 awardees serving 96 sites in their third year. Each grant award is for five consecutive years, contingent on funds available each year from the federal government.

There is no competitive grant application for 21st CCLC currently available.
