21st Century Community Learning Centers

​21st CCLC Federal Funding for Expanded Learning Programs in California


What is this funding? 
​The No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 was signed into law in January 2002, authorizing the California Department of Education (CDE) to administer California's 21st Century Community Learning Centers (CCLC) Program. Education Code sections 8484.7 - 8484.9 further define California's 21st CCLC Program. This state-administered, federally funded program provides five-year grant funding to establish or expand before- and after-school programs that provide disadvantaged kindergarten through twelfth-grade students (particularly students who attend schools in need of improvement) with academic enrichment opportunities and supportive ​services to help the students meet state and local standards in core content areas. The high school division of 21st CCLC programming is known in California as After School Safety and Enrichment for Teens (ASSETs).
