DoEd Rolls Out $2M Program to Aid Disconnected Youth

US-DeptOfEducation-Seal_LargeThe Education Dept. releases the second FY 2016 round of $2 million grants to help youths who are not employed or in school to get them started on a career/post-secondary education path.

Deadline: Oct 31.

The FY 2016 Performance Partnership (P3) (CFDA Number: 84.420A) competition will award up to 10 grants (no match required).

For P3, projects must assist disconnected youth as individuals between the ages of 14 and 24 who are low income and either homeless, in foster care, involved in the juvenile justice system, unemployed, or not enrolled in or at risk of dropping out of an educational institution. Often disconnected from their families and valuable social networks, these young people struggle to make successful transitions to adulthood and to reach the educational and employment milestones critical to escaping a lifetime of poverty. In addition to the new funding, P3 will provide unprecedented flexibility to allow grantees to remove some of the barriers to aid the disconnected youth. The focus of the grants will be to provide disconnected youth with more effective supports to climb ladders of opportunity. Grantees must structure their programs to be replicable because the demos will serve as models for projects to be implemented nationwide

The grants are open to states, localities, and federally-recognized tribes.
