Face Forward 3-Intermediary and Community Grants  - Application Deadline: April 23, 2015

The Department of Labor (DOL), Employment and Training Administration (ETA) plans to award four intermediary organization grants of $5 million each and approximately 10 community organization grants of up to $1,050,000 million each, totaling approximately $30,500,000 million, to provide services to youth between the ages of 14 to 24 that have been involved in the Juvenile Justice System and never convicted in the adult criminal system. The goal of the Face Forward program aligns closely with President Obama's "My Brother's Keeper" initiative which seeks to close opportunity gaps still faced by too many young people and often by boys and young men of color. Grantees are expected to provide a range of services that include case management, mentoring, education and training services. Funded programs will also help to eliminate the stigma of a juvenile record by offering services to seal juvenile records and providing opportunities to handle delinquency complaints outside of the juvenile justice system.

The Face Forward Funding Opportunity Announcement is available here.
