Grant Applications Now Available!


The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction is pleased to announce that applications for 21st Century Community Learning Center (CLC) grants are now available for the 2017-18 school year. The 21st CCLC grant is a federal grant for school programs in Wisconsin. The purposes of the program are to:

  • Provide opportunities for academic enrichment to help students, particularly attending low-performing schools, to meet challenging state academic standards.
  • Offer students an array of additional services, programs, and activities designed to reinforce and complement the regular academic program.
  • Offer families of students served by community learning centers opportunities for active and meaningful engagement in their children’s education, including opportunities for literacy and related educational development.

Public school districts, private schools, charter schools, and community-based organizations (including faith-based organizations) primarily serving students attending schools with 40 percent or more of enrolled students eligible for free or reduced price lunch, or with similar or equivalent economic need, are eligible to apply.

Applications are due March 31, 2017. More information and application materials are available on the department’s CLC website at:

Please note, this application is intended only for new applicants or current grantees in the fifth and final year of their grant cycles. Current WI 21st CCLC grantees in years 1-4 of their grant cycles DO NOT need to participate in this competitive grant process.
