This act would establish a five-year, $1.5 billion competitive grant program for youth summer employment and a five-year, $2 billion competitive grant program for youth year-round employment. Half of funds would be reserved for programs serving in-school youth and half would be reserved for program serving out-of-school youth. This act aims to make it easier for local governments and community organizations to apply directly for federal funded programs to create and expand summer and year-round employment programs for young people.
