Funding Opportunity Number: SGA 07–09. Catalogue of Federal Domestic Assistance (CFDA) Number: 17.720. DATES: Key Date: Applications must be received by June 25, 2007. SUMMARY: The U.S. Department of Labor (‘‘DOL’’ or ‘‘Department’’), Office of Disability Employment Policy (‘‘ODEP’’’), announces the availability of up to $1.7 million to fund a cooperative agreement to establish the National Technical Assistance Center on Transition and Employment for Youth with Disabilities with a 24-month period of performance. In addition, this initiative may be funded for up to three (3) additional option years at approximately $1,000,000 per year, depending on performance, identified need and the availability of future funding. Over the last 10 years, a number of federal and state efforts to improve access to transition planning and services to improve education, employment, and community living VerDate Aug<31>2005 21:09 May 10, 2007 Jkt 211001 outcomes for youth with disabilities have emerged. As a result, there has been some improvement in indicators relevant to the successful transition of youth with disabilities, including increases in graduation rates, increases in enrollment in postsecondary education, and increases in the number of youth entering the workforce. While this progress is encouraging, education and employment outcomes for youth with disabilities continue to lag substantially behind that of their peers without disabilities. To address this situation, ODEP is funding a national technical assistance center to build capacity within and across both generic and disabilityspecific youth service delivery systems to help youth with disabilities successfully transition from high school to post-secondary education and/or employment in high-demand career areas. Effectively addressing the complex and significant barriers to employment faced by youth with disabilities transitioning into the adult world requires the use of multiple strategies and the active involvement of many stakeholders, including Federal, State and local governments, nongovernmental organizations, and employers. This Center will conduct research, disseminate information, and provide technical assistance to a wide range of stakeholders on topics relevant to improving post-school outcomes for youth with disabilities including, but not limited to: • Effective practices, such as the emerging use of individual learning or graduation plans, for aligning and improving the education and workforce development systems to better meet employer demand; • Innovative service strategies which workforce development, and secondary and postsecondary programs and systems can utilize to better meet the needs of transitioning youth; • Professional development strategies for practitioners who work with youth; and • Effective models of multidisciplinary interagency collaboration and systems coordination needed to support youth in achieving positive post-school outcomes through comprehensive service delivery consistent with the Guideposts for Success, see http://www.dol.gov/odep/ categories/youth/. The Guideposts for Success serves as a conceptual framework on improving transition outcomes for youth with disabilities. PO 00000 Frm 00065 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 I. Funding Opportunity Description 1. Description and Purpose ODEP will award one cooperative agreement to establish a national technical assistance and research center. The center will: (1) Conduct research to identify, validate and document effective practices and policies; (2) disseminate information; (3) provide technical assistance; (4) encourage collaboration; and (5) work with states and localities on multiple strategies for improving the post-school outcomes or youth with disabilities. The overall purpose of this effort is to build the capacity of workforce development, economic development, and educational service delivery systems and their partners to work together strategically to ensure that youth with disabilities graduate from high school and enter employment and/or further postsecondary education and training with the skills needed to meet employer demand in the 21st century workplace, and to maximize their ability to be selfsufficient and to live independently. The Center’s research related activities will improve systems capacity to provide comprehensive transition services utilizing research-based strategies consistent with the Guideposts for Success. It must include, but is not limited to, the following activities: (a) Conducting an analysis of all states currently implementing individual learning/graduation planning strategies for all youth to identify practices and strategies that support positive outcomes or create barriers for youth with disabilities. (b) Identifying effective practices for coordinating education, career preparation, youth development and leadership, health, and other employment-related support services that improve transition outcomes for youth with disabilities. The Center must consult with other appropriate technical assistance providers within the Departments of Labor, Education, Health and Human Services, and other Federal agencies in this effort. (c) Assessing the impact of implementing a comprehensive professional development strategy on both the job retention of youth service practitioners and youth service outcomes. (d) The identification of curricula, instructional approaches, programs, and policies that are potentially effective for improving both the academic and functional workplace skills of adolescents and young adults with disabilities.
