Grants starting at $50,000 per year to New Hampshire K-12 schools in collaboration with community or government organizations for academic learning centers for children from low-performing schools. Funding is intended to create out-of-school enrichment programs focused on family literacy, STEM skills, truancy, tutoring services, and drug and violence prevention in order to improve academic achievement.

Under ESSA, the 21st CCLC supports the creation of community learning centers offering a safe learning environment to students during non-school hours (before and after school, summer breaks and other periods when school is not in session) to reinforce and complement the regular academic program of participating students. The purpose of the 21st CCLC program is to award grants to eligible entities to provide opportunities for communities to establish or expand activities in community learning centers.

All eligible entities receiving a grant are required to provide:
a) An academic assistance component,
b) An enrichment component, and
c) A family engagement component for the family members of participating students.
