The Performance Partnership Pilots (P3) Program will provide funds for pilot sites to test outcome-focused strategies focused on improving educational, employment, physical and mental health, and other key outcomes for disconnected youth by providing the flexibility to blend funds from existing federal programs and seeking waivers for associated program requirements to allow for innovative activities otherwise not allowed within program guidelines.

Disconnected youth include, but are not limited to, youth between the ages of 14-24 who are low-income, homeless, in foster care, involved in the juvenile justice system, not in school, English learners, and/or receiving special education and related services under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act.

Applicants must apply under one of the program's absolute priorities.

  1. Improving Outcomes for Disconnected Youth
  2. Improving Outcomes for Disconnected Youth in Rural Communities
  3. Improving Outcomes for Disconnected Youth in Tribal Communities
  4. Improving Outcomes for Disconnected Youth in Communities that Have Recently Experienced Civil Unrest

Additional competitive preference priorities are listed in the application instructions.

Applicants must specify outcome measures in the domains of education, employment, criminal justice, physical health, mental health, and/or housing.


The lead applicant must be a state, local, or tribal government entity, represented by a chief executive, such as a governor, mayor, or other elected leader, or the head of a state, local, or tribal agency.
