Performance Partnerships for Disconnected Youth

Mar 1, 2014

Leaders from Federal, State, and local government agree on the imperative to overcome program silos and fragmented systems to use existing resources more effectively to improve outcomes for disconnected youth. The Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2014 provides authority for the Departments of Labor, Health and Human Services, Education, and the Corporation for National and Community Service to establish up to 10 Performance Partnership pilots, which will allow a state, region, locality, or Federally-recognized tribe to propose pooling a portion of discretionary funds they receive under multiple Federal streams while measuring and tracking specific cross-program outcomes. This model for pooling funds, combined with strengthened accountability for results, is designed to ease administrative burden and promote better education, employment, and other key outcomes for youth
