Request for Information on Innovative Programs to Reconnect Youth to Education and Employment and Promote Self-Sufficiency

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has issued a Request for Information (RFI) to gather information on programs providing services to help youth ages 16 to 24 progress on education and employment pathways. This project focuses on young people who are out of work and/or out of school, especially those from lower income families and communities. The information gathered will be included in a public compendium highlighting selected programs. Note: Not all submissions will be included in the compendium.
