Request a Grant Writer

Grants to Indiana private and public organizations, including LEAs, government agencies, school districts, consortia, IHEs, CBOs, and service centers to provide enrichment opportunities for disadvantaged youth. Funding may be used to develop new programs or to enhance and expand existing programs. Grantees must serve at least 40 youth annually.

This program supports the creation of community learning centers that provide academic enrichment opportunities during non-school hours for youth, particularly youth who attend high-poverty and low-performing schools. The program helps youth meet state and local student standards in core academic subjects, offers youth a broad array of enrichment activities that help their social, emotional, and behavioral development; and offers literacy and other educational services to the families of participating youth. 

The purpose of the initiative is to establish 21st CCLC programs that provide economically disadvantaged youth with opportunities for academic enrichment, character enrichment, and other activities designed to complement the youth’ regular academic program. The 21st CCLC program must also engage adult family members of actively participating youth, through engagement opportunities.

The 21st CCLC programs provide safe environments for youth during nonschool hours and may have one or multiple sites, located in schools, community facilities, and/or faith-based facilities. All sites must provide a range of high-quality services to support student learning and development, that may include, but are not limited to: academic enrichment (e.g. tutoring, homework assistance, high-yield learning activities, etc.) mentoring, service learning, physical fitness and wellness, career and technical programs, internships or apprenticeship programs, etc.

The specific purposes of the programming according to the law are to:

  • Provide opportunities for academic enrichment (e.g. tutoring, homework assistance, high-yield learning activities, etc.) particularly to youth who attend low-performing schools, in order to meet the challenging State academic standards.
  • Offer youth a broad array of character enrichment programs that may
    include, but are not limited to: mentoring, service learning, physical
    fitness and wellness, career and technical programs, internships or
    apprenticeship programs, drug and violence prevention programs,
    counseling programs, art, music, financial literacy programs,
    environmental literacy programs, and others.
  • Offer families of youth served by the community learning centers
    opportunities for active and meaningful engagement in their youth’s
    education, including opportunities for literacy and related educational
    development. (Every Student Succeed Act: Section [4201(a)]
