"The purpose of this program is to provide employment‐related services to eligible youth who are new entrants to the workforce, including those with limited current or past work experience. The program will provide youth with work experience opportunities, including summer and year‐round part‐time job opportunities for in-school youth and employment and work experience opportunities throughout the year for out-of-school youth, and exposure to career pathways in in‐demand job sectors. This program will fund projects designed to link existing summer employment programs, including the Local Workforce Development Board (LWDB)‐administered local summer employment programs and non‐LWDB programs run by cities/counties (where they exist), with local education agencies (LEAs), re‐engagement centers (where they exist), employers, and other community partners to streamline service delivery, align resources, and assist youth in preparing for successful entry into the workforce."
Funder: Employment and Training Administration
Eligibility: "Eligible applicants are Local Workforce Development Boards (LWDBs). In states with a single state local area or where the State Workforce Development Board (SWDB) carries out the functions of a LWDB pursuant to a waiver, the SWDB is an eligible applicant. To be eligible for a grant, applicants must administer an existing summer employment program or, if an LWDB-administered summer employment program does not exist, they must partner with an existing summer employment program that is not administered by a LWDB. Where multiple summer employment programs exist (including a LWDB-administered summer employment program), these grant funds may be used to align these programs."
Amount: Up to $2,000,000
