    GRANTS FOR 2009


  • National Farmworker Jobs Program for Program Year 2009 (SGA/DFA PY 09-02)

    The DOL, ETA, Office of Workforce Investment, Division of Adult Services, announces a grant competition for operating the NFJP, under section 167 of the WIA, 29 U.S.C. 2912 in certain specified service delivery areas. The WIA generally requires the DOL to conduct a grants competition every two years to select entities to operate the NFJP. DOL is exercising its option under WIA sec. 167 (c)(4)(B) to waive competition for the biannual grant competition scheduled for PY 2009 for those grantees determined to have performed successfully as described in TEGL 25-08.

    As explained in TEGL 25-08, the grantees operating in the following service delivery areas were determined to be ineligible for waiver: Arkansas, Hawaii, Indiana, and Nebraska. The current grantee in Maine will cease business operations effective July 1, 2009, necessitating competition in that service delivery area. Accordingly, this notice solicits proposals for grant applications from eligible organizations to serve these areas during PY 2009 and 2010 (October 1, 2009 through June 30, 2011). Due to the late publication date of this announcement, current NFJP grantees have been given an extension to operate the NFJP for the first quarter of PY 2009 (July 1, 2009 through September 30, 2009). The extension is a necessity in order to avoid a disruption in service and harm to the participants caused by the late onset of the competition, which is no fault of the current grantees. The current grant will be funded on a pro-rated basis until September 30, 2009. The ETA will determine the exact percentage of pro-rated funds. Current grantees in the service delivery areas defined above are invited to submit applications to compete for PY 2009 NFJP funds. All interested applicants should read this notice in its entirety.

  • Mentoring, Educational, and Employment Strategies to Improve Academic, Social, and Career Pathway Outcomes (SGA/DFA PY 08-14)

    The Employment and Training Administration (ETA) announces the availability of $34 million for grants to serve high schools that have been designated as persistently dangerous by State Educational Agencies for the 2008-2009 school year under section 9532 of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act. The goal of these grants is to reduce violence within these schools through a combination of mentoring, education, employment, case management, and violence prevention strategies. These grants will be awarded to fund projects in schools not currently receiving a DOL grant for these purposes through a competitive process open both to school districts which include persistently dangerous high schools and to community-based organizations (CBOs) in partnership with these school districts. High schools which have been designated as persistently dangerous this school year and which are not currently receiving a Department of Labor (Department or DOL) grant under this initiative are located in the school districts of Baltimore City, Plainfield (New Jersey), New York City, Schenectady (New York), Salem-Keiser (Oregon), Philadelphia, and Puerto Rico. These schools are listed in Section VIIIA below. School districts and CBOs must submit a separate application for each high school that they propose serving, but may submit as many applications as they have eligible schools. Applications submitted by school districts must include plans to have one or more CBOs as sub-grantees/contractors to operate at a minimum the mentoring component. These proposed CBO sub-grantees/contractors do not need to be listed in the application, as the Department strongly encourages the use of competition in selecting sub-grantees and contractors either before or after grant award. Applications submitted by CBOs must have a school district identified as a partner, with a signed memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the school district included in the application. To be eligible to apply for these grants as a CBO, organizations must be not-for-profit entities and can operate either nationally or locally.
