2016 Grant Competition

Date: January 18, 2016 Author: admin Categories: News

The New Hampshire Department of Education’s 21st Century Community Learning Center Program announces its 2016 competition for an anticipated $1.2 million in funding. The program’s purpose is to raise student academic achievement through the creation and expansion of community learning centers during out of school time hours that provide students with academic enrichment opportunities as well as additional activities designed to complement their regular academic program. All schools with a minimum of 30% of the student population identified as recipients of the free/reduced lunch program by October 2015 are eligible to apply. Middle and high schools are eligible if the majority of the feeder elementary schools meet the eligibility criteria. Priority points will be awarded to priority and focus schools.

Applicants for 21st CCLC funds must demonstrate collaboration between a local educational agency (LEA) and one or more community-based organizations (CBOs), faith based organizations (FBOs) or other public or private entities and must primarily serve students who attend schools with a high concentration of economically disadvantaged students. The lead agency may be the school, district, CBO, FBO or other organization but must always partner with an eligible school. A timeline is included below. Please RSVP to attend the Bidders Conference using the information provided in the timeline below.
