About this grant

This grant will enable the National League of Cities Institute, a research, education, and training affiliate of the National League of Cities, to continue to increase the capacity of municipal leaders in forging cross-system collaborations that address the needs of disconnected youth. During the most recent phase of this effort, the grantee assisted a select group of cities in developing employment strategies for disconnected youth as a result of new opportunities via the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. In the next phase of this initiative, the grantee will launch a new technical assistance effort to assist a more experienced cohort of cities in an effort to develop promising practices for a larger network of cities and municipal leaders across the country interested in improving outcomes for disconnected youth.
