$100M to Help Youth Find Jobs in High Tech Fields

DeptOfLabor-Seal-NewAgency: DOL-Employment and Training Administration; Program: Tech Hire Partnership Grants (CFDA Number: 17.268) (Funding Opportunity Number: FOA-ETA-16-01); Eligibility: Nonprofits; Funding: $100 for 35 awards (no match required); Deadline: March 11.


Projects must help those who are most in need— specifically youth and young adults ages 17-29, individuals with disabilities, individuals with limited English proficiency, and individuals with criminal records and other unemployed, dislocated, underemployed, and front-line incumbent workers —have access to new, innovative training opportunities that produce quality results. The new program will be the second program financed by a user fee paid by employers to hire foreign workers into the United States under the H-1B nonimmigrant visa program – rather than through the yearly appropriations process.

These funds can be used to support training services in occupations for which H-1B visas have been certified, or other occupations in industries in which a significant number of H-1B visas are certified.
