Would create the Enabling Youth to Access Workforce Training Grant Program which would fund supportive services that are necessary for homeless youth and current or former foster youth to enable their participation in the workforce development program. Grants would be awarded on a competitive basis. The bill would require the board to conduct outreach activities and to provide technical assistance to eligible applicants to ensure that grants are awarded to qualified applicants providing a broad spectrum of supportive services.
