About Iowa 21CCLC
21st Century Community Learning Centers
21st Century Community Learning Centers is a U.S. Department of Education program, administered by the states, supporting out-of-school time learning opportunities for students in high-poverty, low-performing areas. The Iowa Department of Education administers 21CCLC funding in Iowa through grant competitions. 21CCLC programs focus on academic support (helping students meet state and local standards in core academic subjects), academic enrichment (providing activities that complement learning from the school day), and parent engagement (offering literacy and educational services to the families of participating students). Technical assistance and support for the 21CCLC programs in Iowa is provided by the Iowa Afterschool Alliance.
