Description: The Department of Labor (DOL) has obligated roughly $750 million over the first three years on Youth Opportunity Grants and will spend approximately $250 million more over the remaining two years on the original 36 grants to high-poverty communities. To manage these grants both at the Federal and local levels and to report to OMB and Congress on the effective use of these funds, DOL will need to continue to collect information on characteristics of youth enrolled, services provided, and program outcomes. Further section 169 of the Workforce Investment Act requires the use of performance measures to evaluate the performance of Youth Opportunity Grantees.Start Signature
