Federal Agencies have announced a Webinar for August 25. 2016, 2 to 3:30 pm EDT, to learn about a special new multi-agency opportunity for Pilots of programs aimed at “Disconnected Youth”.  IF YOU HAVE A PROGRAM ENGAGING THE NEEDIEST YOUTH and want to learn about this, mark your calendar & see details below…
 
Federal agencies have published a notice inviting applications for round 3 of Performance Partnership Pilots for Disconnected Youth (P3), a unique interagency initiative that offers state, local,  and tribal governmental entities and their partners the freedom to innovate to improve the outcomes of some of the nation’s neediest youth.
 
Up to 10 pilots will be given the opportunity to obtain waivers of program requirements that impede effective service delivery, as well as the ability to blend together funds from multiple programs, eliminating the need to account for and report on them separately.   Pilots also receive small start-up grants that can fund administrative expenses, data collection, evaluation and other activities that support effective implementation of the pilot.
 
P3 pilots must include at least two Federal programs that target disconnected youth or are designed to prevent youth from disconnecting and that provide education, training, employment, and other related social services.  At least one of these programs must be administered in whole or in part by a state, local, or tribal government.  They can include discretionary programs administered by the U.S. Departments of Education, Health and Human Services, Housing and Urban Development (Homeless Assistance Grants), Justice (Office of Justice Assistance programs), and Labor, the Corporation for National and Community Service, and the Institute of Museum and Library Services.  A list of examples of eligible programs appears in the Grants.gov application package.  Mandatory funds such as TANF, Medicaid, Social Security, Vocational Rehabilitation Services, and most Foster Care IV-E programs cannot be blended in a pilot, nor is there is authority to offer waivers or flexibilities for these programs under P3.  These programs can, however, be “braided” to support a pilot.
 
The deadline for applications is October 31, 2016.  A webinar for prospective applicants will be held on August 25. 2016 from 2 to 3:30 pm EDT.
