Federal Agencies Seek Performance Partnership Pilot for Disconnected Youth Communities

August 29, 2016

The Department of Justice and six other federal agencies invite eligible local, state, and tribal communities to apply for funding under round 3 of the Performance Partnership Pilots initiative to improve education, employment, and other key outcomes for disconnected youth. The participating agencies have made the application process for federal funds more flexible and waived certain program requirements to enable successful applicants to test strategies to increase the rate at which disconnected youth—youth between the ages of 14 and 24 who are low-income and are homeless, in foster care, involved in the juvenile justice system, unemployed, or not enrolled in or at risk of dropping out of school—achieve success.

The deadline for applications is October 31, 2016.
