This purpose of the Texas 21st Century Community Learning Centers Grant Program, also known as Texas Afterschool Centers on Education (ACE), Cycle 8, Year 1, is to provide opportunities beyond the regular school day for communities to establish or expand activities in community learning centers that (1) provide opportunities for academic enrichment, including providing tutorial services to help children, particularly students who attend low-performing schools, meet state and local student academic achievement standards in core academic subjects such as reading and mathematics; (2) offer students a broad array of additional services, programs, and activities such as youth development activities; drug and violence prevention programs; counseling programs; art, music, and recreation programs; and technology education programs, all of which are designed to reinforce and complement the regular academic program of participating students; and (3) offer families of students served by community learning centers opportunities for literacy and related educational development. Program activities must be offered only when schools are not in session (before or after school, during holidays, or during summer recess). The program must be carried out in active collaboration with the schools the students attend. Applications must document partnerships between an LEA, a CBO, and other public or private organizations, if appropriate.
Funding will be provided for approximately 20 projects. Each project will receive a minimum of $50,000 for the 2013-2014 project period; maximum funds per applicant are $2,200,000. This project is funded 100 percent from Title IV, Part B, of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, as amended by the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001.
