Through this notice, the Department of Labor's Employment and Training Administration (ETA) announces the availability of approximately $30 million to serve juvenile offenders ages 18-21 who have been involved in the juvenile justice system from the age of 14 or above and have never been convicted as an adult under Federal or State Law. ETA expects to award a minimum of 20 grants at various amounts up to $1.5 million each to cover a 30-month period that includes up to four months of planning and a minimum of 26 months of operation. Any non-profit organization with IRS 501(c)(3) status, unit of state or local government, or any Indian and Native American entity eligible for grants under WIA Section 166 may apply for these grants. Service-learning projects conducted through these grants must integrate meaningful community service with instruction and reflection that enrich the learning experience, teach civic responsibility, and encourage lifelong civic engagement.
