YouthBuild Grants Program
Page 2

The YouthBuild model stands upon the idea of balancing in-school learning which could potentially lead to the acquisition of a high school diploma or passing the General Education Development (GED) test with the occupational skills training that's necessary in preparing the youth for career placement.

The YouthBuild Grants Program is intended for highschool dropouts who could also be adjudicated youth, youth aging out of foster care, youth with disabilities, and other at-risk youth populations.

In order to support the initiatives of this program, the Employment and Training Administration is ready to award up to 75 grants in the amount ranging from $700,000 to $1,100,000 for the fiscal year 2012.

The institutions and organizations who are deemed eligible to participate in this program are public or private non-profit agencies or organizations including rural, urban or Native American agencies, such as:

a) Faith-based and community organizations;

b) An organization carrying out activities under Workforce Investment Act (WIA), such as a local workforce investment board, One-Stop Career Center, or local school board;

c) A community action agency;

d) A state or local housing development agency;

e) An Indian tribe or other agency primarily serving American Indians;

f) A community development corporation;

g) A state or local youth service conservation corps;

h) A consortium of such agencies or organizations with a designated lead applicant; and
