$500,000 has been allocated for the Youth Job Training program in 2024. Communities can receive up to $100,000, with up to $5,000 used for administration.
This program addresses the need to support youth (ages 12-19) in workforce training and engagement. Eligible expenses include:
Grant applications are evaluated for funding based on project need, readiness, impact, sustainability and matching funds source and availability. Priority will be given to programs that assist job training in industries highlighted in the Framework for Growth. Priority should also be given to youth training in trades or employment sectors that are in high demand within your community.
Key considerations include:
Youth will benefit from this funding opportunity. Youths could include those at risk of involvement or further involvement in the criminal or juvenile justice system, at risk of involvement in the child welfare system, at risk of education failure (includes risk due to social conditions), education failure (dropping out, expelled, no GED, etc.), youth with no work experience, youth with a history of employment failure, homeless youth, or youth with a disability.
Yes. An instructor (or other program staff) is necessary for training; therefore, the salary is an eligible expense. The salary expense must also be allocable to the program and that must be documented (i.e., document the number of staff hours worked on the program and the number of hours worked outside the program – using timesheets as an example).
The costs of labor, supplies, materials and other costs associated with the program (i.e., purchase of furnishings, equipment and other personal property needed to operate the program).
We are encouraging partnerships with educational institutions and/or other entities involved in youth job training.
Yes, this program requires a 10 percent match.
