About this grant

Since 1998, the 21st Century Community Learning Centers (21st CCLC) program has been providing federal funding to rural and inner-city public schools for planning, implementation and expansion of projects that benefit the educational, health, social services, cultural and recreational needs of the community. The National Center for Community Education (NCCE) has been the primary provider of training and technical assistance to 21st CCLC grantees since the program’s inception. Funding will support the core administration of NCCE as well as training and technical assistance activities associated with the 21st CCLC program, other afterschool programs and community schools. Programs and activities will be aligned with NCCE’s goals that include providing training to promote community and educational change; documenting and disseminating information and strategies to support community and educational change; advancing public opinion, public policy development in and advocacy for community and educational change; promoting learning networks for community and educational change; and enhancing NCCE’s identity as a national community education training center.NCCE was established in 1962 to promote community education by providing leadership training opportunities. Its goal is to equip afterschool providers and community educators with the knowledge and skills needed to provide quality and sustainable learning opportunities for students and their families.
