Notice of Funding Opportunity and Solicitation for Grant 
Applications (SGA) for Civic Justice Corps Grants Serving Juvenile 

AGENCY: Employment and Training Administration, Labor.

ACTION: Notice of Solicitation for Grant Applications (SGA).


    Funding Opportunity Number: SGA/DFA PY 10-04.
SUMMARY: Through this notice, the Department of Labor's Employment and 
Training Administration (ETA) announces the availability of 
approximately $20 million in grant funds authorized by the Workforce 
Investment Act for Civic Justice Corps Grants to serve juvenile 
offenders ages 18 to 24 who have been involved with the juvenile 
justice system within 12 months before entry into the program. Civic 
Justice Corps projects funded through this grant announcement will 
provide young offenders the opportunity to give something back to their 
communities through community service to make up for past 
transgressions. Such projects hold promise for reducing the recidivism 
rate of juvenile offenders by improving their vocational and 
educational skills and long-term prospects in the labor market and by 
increasing their attachment to their community and their sense of 
community responsibility. These grants will be awarded through a 
competitive process. ETA intends to fund a minimum of 13 grants at 
various amounts. Applicants may submit only one proposal of up to $1.5 
million to cover a 30-month period of performance that includes up to 
four months of planning and a minimum of 26 months of operation.
    The complete SGA and any subsequent SGA amendments, in connection 
with this solicitation is described in further detail on ETA's Web site 
at http://www.doleta.gov/
