Grants to Virginia schools, nonprofit, faith-based, and for-profit organizations, and IHEs for after-hours academic enrichment opportunities. Funding is intended to support programs that help students meet standards in core academic subjects, such as reading and mathematics; offer enrichment activities that complement regular academic programs; and offer literacy and other educational services to the families of participating children. Special emphasis is placed on programs serving low-performing schools, and schools with a high-poverty student body.

Applicants must consult extensively with parents, community organizations, businesses, arts and cultural organizations, and other youth development agencies to develop 21st CCLC proposals. VDOE will give priority to applications that meet any or all of the following criteria:

  • Joint applications between at least one school division and at least one public or private community organization;
  • Propose to serve students in schools that either are Priority Schools, Conditionally Accredited Reconstituted or Accreditation Denied for the current school year;
  • Proposals to serve students in middle or high schools; or
  • Proposals to serve students who attend schools with free and reduced-price lunch eligibility of 75 percent or greater.
