New Opportunity: Apply to the Performance Partnership Pilots Program
Monday, December 1, 2014 | 3:30 p.m. Eastern Time
Today, five Federal agencies are coming together to offer communities support in overcoming the obstacles they face in achieving better outcomes for disconnected youth. For the next 100 days, States, tribes, and municipalities can apply to become a Performance Partnership Pilot (P3) program. These pilot communities will test innovative, cost-effective, and outcome-focused strategies for improving results for disconnected youth.
You're invited to register for an upcoming webinar on Monday, December 1, 2014, at 3:30 p.m. Eastern Time to learn more about P3.
About the P3 Program
The P3 program enables up to 10 pilot communities to blend funds that they already receive from different discretionary programs administered by the U.S. Departments of Education, Labor, and Health and Human Services; the Corporation for National and Community Service; and the Institute for Museum and Library Services. P3 allows communities the flexibility to overcome barriers and aligns program and reporting requirements so applicants can propose the most effective ways to use these dollars. In addition, pilot communities will receive start-up grants of up to $700,000.
Government and community partners already invest considerable attention and resources to meet the needs of America's disconnected youth. However, practitioners, youth advocates, and program administrators on the front lines of service delivery have told us that achieving powerful outcomes is still sometimes inhibited by obstacles. Those obstacles include difficulty coordinating across the multiple systems that serve youth. P3 responds directly to these challenges by offering more flexibility in exchange for better outcomes.
