My contact at ODE, Darcy Miller, just informed me that libraries may partner with school districts to apply for 21st Century Community Learning Center Grants!

Questions? Contact Pete Ready at pete.ready at state.or.us<mailto:pete.ready at state.or.us> or 503-947-5785.

(Note: My last email was recruiting people to review current 21st Century grant project. This email is announcing they are accepting applications for the new round of 21st Century grant projects. Sorry for any confusion.)

New Round of 21st Century Community Learning Center Grants Available

SALEM - Today the Oregon Department of Education (ODE) has opened the next competition for $9.5 million in funds for 21st Century Community Learning Center (CCLC) grants. This program supports the creation of community learning centers that provide academic enrichment opportunities during non-school hours for children, particularly students who attend high-poverty and low-performing schools. The program helps students meet state and local standards in core academic subjects such as reading and math, provides students with a broad array of enrichment activities that can complement their regular academic programs, and offers literacy and other educational services to the families of participating children.

Eligible entities include, but are not limited to, school districts, education service districts, community colleges, faith-based and community organizations, charter schools and city and county agencies. Schools and community organizations are encouraged to apply as partners.

The 21st CCLC 2013 request for proposal and application are posted on ODE's 21st CCLC website: http://www.ode.state.or.us/search/results/?id=108

The 21st CCLC application has been revised since previous competitions, so applicants should be sure to download the new 2013 grant application. Completed grant applications must be received at ODE by 5:00 PM on Tuesday June 4, 2013. Successful proposals will be funded as of July 1, 2013. All awards are pending receipt of federal funds.

To help partnerships develop high quality applications, ODE will offer technical assistance sessions on Friday, May 3, 2013 at ODE. Repeat sessions will be held from 8:30-11:30 AM, and 1:00-4:00 PM. Click here<https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/21stCCLCRFP> to register for this technical assistance meeting. Please complete registration by 12 pm on Thursday, May 2, as seating for each session time is limited.

For those unable to attend the meeting on May 3, a technical assistance webinar will be held on Monday, May 6, 2013 from 9-10:30 am. Webinar access information is available here<http://www.ode.state.or.us/opportunities/grants/nclb/title_iv/b_comlearning/21st-cclc-rfp-competition-webinar.doc> [MS-Word] .
