Earlier this year, when the President unveiled his fiscal year 2013 budget proposal, it included a new program called Performance Partnership Pilots. This initiative – as outlined in the President’s budget request – is designed to allow the blending of Federal funds from various programs to improve outcomes for disconnected youth, defined as young people ages 14 to 24 who are homeless, in foster care, involved in the juvenile justice system, or are neither employed nor enrolled in an educational institution.
Today, the Department announced a request for information, asking the public to provide input on certain questions by July 5, 2012 in the areas of:
- Effective or Promising Practices and Strategies
- Public and Private Partnerships
- Outcomes, Data, and Evaluation Design
- Alternative Pilot Designs
