    The Louisiana Department of Education (LDOE) is pleased to announce the opportunity for nonprofit organizations in Louisiana to submit an external organization profile (Profile). The LDOE is required, under the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), Title IV, Part B, 21st Century Community Learning Centers (21st CCLC), to provide a list of pre-screened external organizations.

    The term “external organization” is defined by ESSA as: “(A) a nonprofit organization with a record of success in running or working with before and after school (or summer recess) programs and activities; or (B) in the case of a community where there is no such organization, a nonprofit organization in the community that enters into a written agreement or partnership with an organization described in subparagraph (A) to receive mentoring and guidance in running or working with before and after school (or summer recess) programs and activities” (ESSA, section 4201).

    To meet the requirements for the minimum record of success, any organization submitting a Profile must:

    • Operate as a nonprofit in good standing in Louisiana; and
    • Have a minimum of seven years of experience operating or delivering services to out-of-school time programs in Louisiana.

    If your organization meets the record of success requirements, you are eligible to complete and submit the Profile at LDOEExOrgProfile no later than 2:00 p.m. CDT on February 3, 2023. The next opportunity to submit a Profile will occur during the summer of 2025. LDOE will post the updated pre-screened list at by March 3, 2023.

    Please note that this solicitation will not result in a contract with LDOE. Nor does the listing represent an endorsement by LDOE. LDOE will verify “good standing” status using the debarred vendor list when the Profile is submitted and periodically thereafter. All eligible pre-screened organizations will remain on the list for two years from the date posted on the LDOE website.

    I am requesting that you widely share this announcement throughout Louisiana. Thank you for your commitment to ensuring Louisiana’s children have access to high quality out-of-school time programming.

    Hunters for the Hungry Louisiana was founded in 1994.

    Top goal for 2023: To encourage deer donations before the hunting season ends. When a hunter drops off their bounty to one of our Partner Processors (50+ across the state), it's NO COST to the hunter to have the deer processed and delivered to a local food bank, shelter, or kitchen. Hunters For The Hungry Louisiana pays the invoice, and we coordinate the delivery with the processor.
