after school or during nonschool hours. The commissioner shall develop criteria for after-school
community learning programs.

learning programs are to increase:
    (1) school connectedness of participants;

    (4) prevent truancy from school and prevent juvenile crime.
    Subd. 3. Grants. An applicant shall submit an after-school community learning program
proposal to the commissioner. The submitted plan must include:
    (1) collaboration with and leverage of existing community resources that have demonstrated
    (2) outreach to children and youth; and

unless no government agency is appropriate.
    Proposals will be reviewed and approved by the commissioner.
