National Guard Youth ChalleNGe and Job ChalleNGe Program Grants: The Employment and Training Administration (ETA), U.S. Department of Labor (DOL, or the Department, or we), announces the availability of approximately $12,000,000.00 in grant funds authorized by Section 171, Pilot and Demonstration Projects, of the Workforce Investment Act, to: 1) test the effectiveness of expanding the National Guard Youth ChalleNGe Program for youth who have come in contact with the juvenile justice system for committing a status offense or a delinquent act (court-involved youth), and, 2) add and test an additional job training component (DOL Job ChalleNGe) to the program for court-involved youth and youth that have had no contact with the juvenile justice system (non-court-involved youth).

The DOL Job ChalleNGe is to be part of the comprehensive National Guard Youth ChalleNGe program in which program participants, referred to as Cadets, receive military-based training, engage in supervised work experience, and complete eight core program components, during a six-month residential phase conducted on an active or closed National Guard base, training center, or school campus. The National Guard Youth ChalleNGe is operated by the National Guard Bureau and funded through a National Guard Youth ChalleNGe Cooperative Agreement executed by the United States Property and Fiscal Officer, National Guard Bureau, and The Adjutant General of a State, Commonwealth, District or Territory.

Under this grant, and upon completion of the six-month residential phase, each Cadet will be matched with a mentor to help him or her prepare to re-enter community life during a 12-month mentorship phase. The 12-month mentorship phase will be non-residential, except for those Cadets who, at the start of the 12-month mentorship phase, elect to enroll in the five-month residential DOL Job ChalleNGe in order to receive additional vocational services. For this DOL Job ChalleNGe solicitation we expect to award up to $4,000,000 each to three (3) grantees totaling $12,000,000 with a period of performance of 42 months. During these 42 months, grantees will operate the DOL Job ChalleNGe, which will include a three-month planning period and facilitation of the 12-month mentoring phase. Applicants may not exceed a request of $4,000,000 to operate this DOL Job ChalleNGe, which will fund the planning period and the five-month residential DOL Job ChalleNGe phase. However, the six-month residential phase of the National Guard Youth ChalleNGe program must be funded with funds obligated under the National Guard Youth ChalleNGe Cooperative Agreement.
