New grants available for helping disconnected youth
November 27, 2014
The Obama administration is now accepting applications for a small pilot program aiming to boost outcomes for homeless youth in the juvenile justice system or facing other similar challenges. The Performance Partnership Pilots (P3) program, authorized by the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2014, Division H, Section 526 (the Act), will enable up to ten pilot sites to test innovative, outcome-focused strategies to achieve significant improvements in educational, employment, and other key outcomes for disconnected youth using new flexibility to blend existing Federal funds and to seek waivers of associated program requirements. P3 pilots will receive start-up grants to support ongoing planning, streamlined governance, strengthened data infrastructure, improved coordination, and related activities to help pilots improve outcomes for disconnected youth.
Applications are due by March 4, 2015
