The Youthbuild Program was authorized under subtitle D of title IV of the Cranston-Gonzalez National Affordable Housing Act, as added by section 164 of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1992 (Pub. L. 102-550, 106 Stat. 3723, 42 USC. 12899). Applications were rated and selected for funding on the basis of selection criteria contained in the notice.

The Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance number for this program is 14.243. The purpose of the Youthbuild Program is to assist disadvantaged young adults between the ages of 16 and 24 years of age in distressed communities to: (1) Complete their high school education; (2) provide on-site construction training experiences which result in the rehabilitation or construction of housing for homeless persons and low- and very low-income families; (3) foster leadership skills; (4) further opportunities for placement in apprenticeship programs; and (5) promote economic self-sufficiency for program participants. The funds made available under this program were awarded competitively, through a selection process conducted by HUD.

For the Fiscal Year 2006 competition, a total of $45.5 million was awarded to 74 projects nationwide. In accordance with section 102(a)(4)(C) of the Department of Housing and Urban Development Reform Act of 1989 (103 Stat. 1987. 42 U.S.C. 3545), the Department is publishing the grantees and amounts of the awards in Appendix A to this document.
