Request for Proposals — New Competition

Thank you for your interest in the 21st Century Community Learning Centers (CCLC) Grant. The North Carolina Department of Public Instruction is launching a new 21st CCLC Grant competition in August, 2016, in anticipation of an initial grant award in Fall, 2017.  

Occasionally check back on this site to gain access to the latest 21st CCLC resource materials and training opportunities, including upcoming hands-on training with the North Carolina Comprehensive Continuous Improvement Plan (CCIP), the web-based grants management system that houses the 21st CCLC funding application (mandatory training for novice applicants).


In anticipation of the upcoming competition, the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction is providing several technical assistance sessions across the state to communicate the general background and federal requirements of the 21st CCLC Grant as implemented in North Carolina and to familiarize applicants with the components of the web-based application. Organizations potentially interested in submitting a grant proposal are highly encouraged to attend at least one technical assistance session.
