Developing a Proposal for a Round Three Performance Partnership Pilot (P3)

Meeting Description:

Frustrated by federal policy barriers preventing you from providing coordinated services and supports for disconnected youth? Do you have an innovative idea that will improve outcomes for disconnected youth?

Performance Partnership Pilots (P3) will give selected local, tribal and state agencies the opportunity to enter into an agreement with the federal government that will grant broad flexibility in how the site uses discretionary federal funds to implement evidence-informed practices while committing to achieve significant improvements for disconnected youth. P3 applicants can request to (1) blend their existing federal discretionary funds and (2) receive flexibility from specific federal program requirements. The round three proposals are due October 31.

Join the Forum for Youth Investment's policy team as we walk through the specific components of the Round Three P3 application and share resources that will help you develop a quality proposal.

Vice President, Policy Advocacy
Forum for Youth Investment
Thaddeus is a campaigner, although not for elected office. Rather, he works in bi-partisan fashion to promote evidence-based policies that help communities achieve collective impact for all youth (especially those disconnected from school and work) and that incorporate youth voices.
On the federal level, Thaddeus drafted policy recommendations that were adopted by the White House Task Force for Disadvantaged Youth in the George W. Bush administration, and recommendations that were adopted by the White House Council for Community Solutions in the Obama Administration. He helped to orchestrate National Youth Summits for the George W. Bush and Obama administrations; and to build legislation to create Performance Partnership Pilots, which enable communities to blend fragmented federal programs in innovative ways to help disconnected youth (signed by President Obama).
