Nationally recognized degree or certificate or State recognized credential Credentials (H.S Dipl./GED, postsecondary degrees, recognized skills standards, licensure, apprenticeship or industry recognized certificates).

Yes for older youth, as long as the credentials meets the definition. Younger youth (youth enrolled in the program at age 14-18), are measured by their attainment of a high school diploma or GED, not any other credential. It is also important to keep in mind that two of the mandated program elements are tutoring, study skills training, and instruction, leading to completion of secondary school, including dropout prevention strategies and alternative secondary school services, as appropriate. This means that a program would not be expected to provide GED/High School diploma service/instruction directly, but the program would be expected to provide the linkages to GED high School Diploma services/instructions if a youth did not have that credential.
It means that your program should access GED /services/instruction wherever you can, at the schools when possible, but also at other locations if necessary.
Yes, we do not plan on any policy change there. Simply put this means that in the case of Younger Youth, hours in advance training or post secondary education can be combined with work hours to meet the definition of a program outcome.

You would include the number of clients that you propose to serve with the funds requested that will receive at least one hour of training prior to their exit date within the contract period.
The budget should reflect 100% of the cost of the proposed training that you are requesting through the proposal.

When completing this portion of the budget, you must indicate the total salary for staff who would be funded with the contract. For example, if an employee total salary is 20,000.00 and they were expected to spend 50% of their time on this Youth training program, then you would indicate 10,000.00 for “This Program” and 10,000.00 for “Other”.
