Intent to Apply: 21st CCLC & ASSETs

by ExCEL ASP | October 10, 2023 | General News

The Expanded Learning Division (EXLD) of the California Department of Education (CDE) has released the 21st Century Community Learning Centers (21st CCLC) Program and After School Safety and Enrichment Teen (ASSETs) Program Request for Applications (RFAs) for funding beginning in the 2024-2025 fiscal year. The 21st CCLC funding is for elementary or middle school programs that support 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 and their families. 

ASSETs funding is for high school programs that create incentives for establishing locally driven after school enrichment programs where partner schools and communities provide academic support and safe, constructive alternatives for high school pupils in the hours after the regular school day, and that supports college and career readiness.

The 21st CCLC and ASSETs RFAs can be found on the CDE Funding and Fiscal Management Web page at RFA: 21st CCLC Elementary/Middle & 21st CCLC ASSETs (CA Dept of Education)

Applications for both 21st CCLC and ASSETs are due Thursday, November 16, 2023.  

San Francisco United School District intends to apply for a 21 Century Community Learning Center grant to fund Comprehensive After School Programs at eligible, qualified school sites.
