|Amanda Szekely and Heather Clapp Padgette|
|The is a research brief on sustainability of programs funded by the U.S. Department of Education's 21st Century Community Learning Centers (21st CCLC) program as the first rounds of state-administered grants expired. The goal of the research was to better understand what contributed to or hindered the sustainability of 21st CCLC programs. The programs operated in rural and urban communities nationwide and had varying degrees of local support. All continue to offer varying degrees of out-of-school-time programming.
