Performance Partnership Pilots
An upcoming opportunity to improve outcomes for disconnected youth aims to help this vulnerable population make successful transitions to adulthood. The Performance Partnership Pilots (P3) will allow jurisdictions to pool portions of formula and competitive grants. This will provide more flexibility for improving outcomes in educational, employment, and other key domains for disconnected youth—defined as low-income youth ages 14–24 who are homeless, in foster care, involved in the justice system, and not working or not enrolled in an educational institution.
The opportunity is made possible through the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2014, which authorized the Departments of Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education as well as the Corporation for National and Community Service, the Institute of Museum and Library Sciences, and related agencies to establish up to 10 P3 programs.
More information, including a P3 factsheet and other resources, is available on the Federal Government website FindYouthInfo.gov:
