YouthBuild Funds Released

The Employment and Training Administration (ETA), U.S. Department of Labor (DOL or Department), announces the availability grant funds authorized by the YouthBuild provisions of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA).  

DOL will award grants to organizations to oversee the provision of education, occupational skills training, and employment services to disadvantaged youth in their communities while performing meaningful work and service to their communities.

In Fiscal Year 2015, DOL hopes to serve approximately 4,950 participants during the grant period, with approximately 76 projects awarded across the country.

Individual grants require an exact 25 percent match from applicants, using sources other than federal funding.
