2015 Face Forward Grants

Posted by Ben Seigel - On July 20, 2015 (EST)

On June 25, 2015, the Department of Labor awarded $31.5 million to 15 organizations under the Face Forward grant competition. Face Forward combines the most promising workforce and juvenile justice strategies to help court-involved youth attain in-demand occupational and employment skills needed to obtain good jobs. Grantees are expected to offer a range of services, including case management with family support, mentoring, training that leads to industry-recognized credentials, and work-based learning opportunities. Funded programs will also help to address the stigma of having a juvenile record by offering services to seal juvenile records and providing opportunities to handle delinquency complaints outside of the juvenile justice system.
