Administration on Children, Youth and Families – Street Outreach Program
Every day, in communities across the country, young people run from or are asked to leave homes characterized by abuse, neglect, or parental drug and alcohol abuse. Once on the streets, these young people often lose touch with the caring adults in their extended families, schools, and communities that can help and protect them. As a result, they frequently fall victim to exploitation and abuse. Young people disproportionately suffer from serious health, behavioral, and emotional problems. Often, they are unable to find or keep the safe, stable housing that is so crucial to a successful transition to adulthood.
Since 1996, projects funded by the SOP have provided services to youth living on the streets and in unstable situations by reaching out to them. These projects aim to increase young people’s safety, well-being, and self-sufficiency, and to help them build permanent connections with caring adults, with the goal of getting them off the streets.
Public and nonprofit private agencies are eligible for awards under this funding opportunity, in accordance with section 351 of the RHY Act. (Runaway and Homeless Youth Act, 42 U.S.C. §§ 5714-41).
Grantees must provide at least 10 percent of the total approved cost of the project.

Office of Innovation and Improvement, Department of Education.
The Investing in Innovation Fund (i3), established under section 14007 of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA), provides funding to support (1) local educational agencies (LEAs), and (2) nonprofit organizations in partnership with (a) one or more LEAs or (b) a consortium of schools.
The i3 program is designed to generate and validate solutions to persistent educational challenges and to support the expansion of effective solutions across the country to serve substantially larger numbers of students. The central design element of the i3 program is its multi-tier structure that links the amount of funding that an applicant may receive to the quality of the evidence supporting the efficacy of the proposed project. Applicants proposing practices
supported by limited evidence can receive relatively small grants that support the development and initial evaluation of promising practices and help to identify new solutions to pressing challenges; applicants proposing practices supported by evidence from rigorous evaluations, such as large randomized controlled trials, can receive sizable grants to support expansion across the Nation. This structure provides incentives for applicants to build evidence of effectiveness of their proposed projects and to address the barriers to serving more students across schools, districts, and States so that applicants can compete for more sizeable grants.

Notice of Availability of Funds and Solicitation for Grant Applications for Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College and Career Training Grants Program
Approximately $474 million in grant funds to be awarded under the Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College and Career Training (TAACCCT) grant program. This solicitation announces a third round of funding under the TAACCCT grant program. The TAACCCT grant program provides eligible institutions of higher education, as defined in section 102 of the Higher Education Act of 1965 (20 U.S.C. 1002), with funds to expand and improve their ability to deliver education and career training programs that can be completed in two years or less, and are suited for workers who are eligible for training under the Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) for Workers Program (“TAA-eligible workers”) of chapter 2 of title II of the Trade Act of 1974, 19 U.S.C. 2271-2323, as well as other adults. Eligible institutions may be located in the 50 States, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico or the U.S. territories; however, the competitiveness of institutions in the U.S. territories for this Solicitation for Grant Applications (SGA) may be impacted by their limited opportunity to serve TAA–eligible workers.
