$20M in Grants Support Programs Aiding Out-of-School Youth

Agency: Labor Dept.-Employment& Training Admin. (ETA); Program: Summer Jobs and Beyond: Career Pathways for Youth (CPY) (CFDA Number: 17.280, Funding Opportunity Number: FOA-ETA-16-08); Eligibility: State and local workforce agencies (must administer youth and dislocated worker programs); Funding: $20 million for 10 awards (no match required); Deadline: March 25.

Summary: Grants help local and state workforce agencies do a better job of getting people back to work. Unemployed, out-of-school and disconnected youth is one focus area. Specifically, applicants must administer an existing summer employment program or, if an local workforce-administered summer employment program does not exist, they must partner with an existing summer employment program that is not administered by a local workforce board. Where multiple summer employment programs exist these grant funds may be used to align these programs.

ETA likes programs for out-of-school youth that combine training in high-growth industry sectors with basic skills remediation and that incorporate placement into subsidized or unsubsidized employment opportunities.
