Trump Proposal Eliminates Afterschool Funding
President Trump's budget singles out 21st Century Community Learning Centers (21st CCLC) for elimination, potentially affecting more than a million children.

21st Century Community Learning Centers
In Pennsylvania, the 21st Century Community Learning Center initiative is the only federal funding source dedicated exclusively to before and after school and summer learning programs. Investments in 21st CCLC programs are keeping children in high‐poverty, low‐performing schools safe and supported, engaging them in interest‐driven, academically enriching activities, and providing peace of mind to working families. However, the number of Pennsylvania students who would be enrolled in an afterschool program if one were available to them far outweighs the number of students who attend a 21st CCLC program, due in large part to limited federal funding for programs.
