Subdivision 1.Establishment.

A competitive statewide after-school community learning grant program is established to provide grants to community or nonprofit organizations, political subdivisions, for-profit or nonprofit child care centers, or school-based programs that serve youth after school or during nonschool hours. The commissioner shall develop criteria for after-school community learning programs.

Subd. 2.Program outcomes.

The expected outcomes of the after-school community learning programs are to increase:

(1) school connectedness of participants;

(2) academic achievement of participating students in one or more core academic areas;

(3) the capacity of participants to become productive adults; and

(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 effectiveness;

(2) outreach to children and youth; and

(3) involvement of local governments, including park and recreation boards or schools, unless no government agency is appropriate.

Proposals will be reviewed and approved by the commissioner.
