Purpose: The 21st Century Community Learning Centers Program Continuation Grant: Cohorts 7a, 8, 9 and10 intended to supplement the education of students in grades 4-12, who attend schools eligible for Title I schoolwide programs or schools where a minimum of 30 percent of students are from low-income families. The program aims to assist students in attaining the skills necessary to meet New Jersey's Core Curriculum Content Standards. Therefore, all 21st CCLC programs must provide participating students with academic enrichment opportunities that complement the regular school day. The vision for New Jersey's 21st CCLC Program is to develop high quality out-of-school time programs through community learning centers that provide services not just to the child but to the entire family unit. Currently, New Jersey's 21st CCLC Program is comprised of 50 grantees throughout the state. Grantees include local education agencies (LEAs), non-profit, for-profit, community-based, and faith-based organizations, operating solely or in partnership with other agencies. Eligibility to apply for this 21st CCLC grant is open to the applicants that received funding under the competitions for Cohorts 7a, 8, 9 and 10 who have made satisfactory progress towards the goals and objectives outlined in their respective grant applications. The continuation year of this five year program is September 1, 2015 - August 31, 2016.
