Approved Programs

The Department receives three sources of funding for Afterschool programs which are then made available to the local level through a competitive or needs-based grant award process:

  • School Age Community (SAC)
  • 21st Century Community Learning Centers (21st CCLC)
  • Afterschool Retreat Reading and Assessment Grant Program

The purposes and requirements for these three grants vary, but all have common themes of keeping school-age youth safe and engaged while providing tutoring and enrichment opportunities that youth may not get during the regular school day.  Below is a brief explanation of each grant program and currently funded programs.


21st Century Community Learning Centers (21st CCLC) grants - cohort 10 were awarded on September 15, 2017.

School Age Community (SAC) grants - cohort 8 were awarded on September 18, 2017.
