Youthful Offender Registered Apprenticeship, Alternative Education, and Project Expansion Grants (SGA-DFA-PY-06-10)
On May 2, 2007 the Employment and Training Administration at the U.S. Department of Labor announced the availability of approximately $20 million for Youthful Offender Grants. These grants will be awarded through a competitive process for three categories of projects—(1) Registered Apprenticeship (to increase the placement of young adults being released from the criminal justice system in registered apprenticeship); (2) Alternative Educational Pathways (to increase the educational achievement and attainment of youth in the juvenile justice system); and (3) Project Expansion (to replicate effective programs for serving juvenile offenders). Applicants can apply for grants in more than one of these categories, but separate applications must be submitted for each category.
