Greenvale Park Community School receives competitive 21st Century Community Learning Center grant
September 11, 2019
Project to receive up to six years of continued funding
The Greenvale Park Community School received exciting news earlier this summer – the project was selected for up to six years of additional funding through the Minnesota Department of Education’s 21st Century Community Learning Center grant award.
Greenvale Park’s initial five-year 21st Century grant ended this summer, making this year’s competition particularly critical.
Only one in three applicants statewide were selected for funding. The 21st Century grant competition is only open every 2-3 years, further raising the stakes of this year’s application.
The Greenvale Park Community School offers before school, after school, and evening programming for youth and adults of all ages. The program served 938 youth and 650 adults last year.
A flagship Northfield Promise initiative, the Greenvale Park Community School is a collaboration between the Northfield Public Schools, Northfield Healthy Community Initiative, and more than 25 local partnering organizations. In addition to the 21st Century Community Learning Center grant, the project is funded by Women In Northfield Giving Support and Northfield Shares, plus other local donors.
