School Support and Accountability


Discretionary Grants with Cooperative Agreement

Program Purpose

The National Technical Assistance Center (NTAC) under the 21st Century Community Learning Centers Programs supports State educational agencies (SEAs) and their subgrantees operate 21st CCLCs in providing academic enrichment opportunities for students attending high-poverty, low-performing schools during non-school hours.

Program Description

The 21st CCLC program provides essential out-of-school time learning that helps accelerate academic recovery and support students’ social, emotional, and mental health.  While out-of-school time opportunities are always essential, they have been especially critical as students continue to recover from the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.  The 21st CCLC NTAC will help 21st CCLC grantees and subgrantees provide effective out-of-school time opportunities that have the biggest possible positive impact in students’ lives.
