Grant Support for SASC Partners for 21st Century Community Learning Centers

Updated: Jan 29

As a service to the members of the Summer + Afterschool Collaborative, Learn to Earn Dayton is coordinating information sharing and peer review sessions for any districts or afterschool partners planning to submit a grant package to become a 21st CCLC.

The grant application portal will open March 4, 2024, and all grant application packages will be due April 5, 2024. Be sure you have an account set up, plan to attend the ODEW trainings (red below), review the grant application template, and get ahead of the game. Review this page for details on registration and setting an account for federal award management. 

Review this folder of resources. In addition to curriculum recommendations and planning tools, you’ll find sample applications from past successfully funded programs, including scored rubrics that show what the reviewers liked (and where there are opportunities for improvement).

Join us for a series of peer review sessions (in blue below)! We’ll review language, budgets, and timelines, make recommendations, and help to ensure strong applications!
