U.S. Department of Labor Employment and Training Administration: Seeking Applications for “YouthBuild” Grants

Deadline: 18 September 2018

The U.S. Department of Labor Employment and Training Administration is seeking applications for its funding program “YouthBuild”  to provide a pre-apprenticeship program model that encompasses education, occupational skills training, leadership development, and post program placement opportunities to at-risk youth.

YouthBuild is a community-based alternative education program for youth between the ages of 16 and 24 who are high school dropouts, adjudicated youth, youth aging out of foster care, youth with disabilities, migrant farmworker youth, and other disconnected youth populations.

The YouthBuild program simultaneously addresses multiple core issues important to youth in low-income communities: affordable housing, leadership development, education, and employment opportunities in in-demand industries and apprenticeship pathways.

Elements

  • Training and curriculum that aligns with the skill needs of employers in the economy of the State or region involved;
  • Access to educational and career counseling and other supportive services, directly or indirectly;
  • Hands-on, meaningful learning activities that are connected to education and training activities, such as exploring career options, and understanding how the skills acquired through coursework can be applied toward a future career;
  • Opportunities to attain at least one industry-recognized credential; and
  • A partnership with one or more registered apprenticeship programs that assists in placing individuals who complete the pre-apprenticeship program in a registered apprenticeship program.

Funding Information

  • Estimated Total Program Funding: $85,000,000
  • Award Ceiling: $1,100,000
  • Award Floor: $700,000

Eligibility Criteria

  • Eligible applicants for these grants are public or private non-profit agencies. These organizations include rural, urban, or Native American agencies that have previously served disadvantaged youth in a YouthBuild or other similar program. These agencies or organizations may include, but are not limited to:
    • Community and faith-based organizations with IRS 501(c)(3) non-profit status;
    • An entity carrying out activities under WIOA, such as a local workforce development board or one-stop center partner program;
    • Educational institutions, including a local school board, public school district, or community college;
    • A community action agency;
    • A State or local housing development agency;
    • Any Indian and Native American entity eligible for grants under Section 166 of WIOA, including Federally and other than Federally-Recognized Tribes, Native American non-profit organizations, and Native Hawaiian and Alaska Native organizations;
    • A community development corporation;
