Audioconference to Help Cities Access Economic Stimulus Funds for Children, Youth and Families


Meade, Katie, Nation's Cities Weekly


The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, signed into law by President Obama two weeks ago, offers new resources that cities can use to help children, youth and families in their communities.

On Thursday, March 26, at 4 p.m. Eastern Time, NLC's Institute for Youth, Education, and Families (YEF Institute) will host a free, hour-long audioconference on "Recovery and Reinvestment Plans for America: What They Mean for Your Community's Children and Families." The call will help municipal leaders understand how they can take advantage of new federal spending in areas such as education, health care, youth violence prevention, job training and benefits for needy families.

The audioconference is part of NLC's efforts to help cities get the most out of the economic recovery package. The upcoming Congressional City Conference will focus on the recovery package; NLC is also helping cities through webcasts and online information on the new federal dollars.

While much of the funding will flow through states, counties and school districts, significant resources will be available directly to cities through several key federal grant programs. For instance, municipal leaders will be able to access additional dollars for their cities through increased Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funding. Nearly $4 billion in new Workforce Investment Act funds will be available for workforce training and development, including summer jobs for youth.
