DOL/ETA RIN: 1205-AB49 Publication ID: Fall 2009 
Title: YouthBuild Program Regulation 
Abstract: The YouthBuild Transfer Act of 2006, Public Law 109-281, enacted on September 22, 2006, transfers oversight and administration of the YouthBuild program from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL). The YouthBuild program model targets are high school dropouts, adjudicated youth, youth aging out of foster care, and other at-risk youth populations. The program model balances in-school learning, geared toward a high school diploma or GED, and construction skills training, geared toward a career placement for the youth. DOL intends to develop regulations in response to the legislation and to guide the program implementation and management.

Statement of Need: The YouthBuild Transfer Act of 2006 (Transfer Act), PL 109-281, transfers the YouthBuild program from the HUD to the DOL. The transfer incorporates technical modifications and amends certain program features. The Employment and Training Administration is proposing new regulations which will govern its administration of the YouthBuild program. The Transfer Act maintains all the goals of the YouthBuild program as originally developed under HUD, including supporting the development of affordable housing, but shifts the emphasis to skills training for youth participants. The Transfer Act makes the YouthBuild program consistent with the job training, education, and employment goals under the Workforce Investment Act, PL 105-220, as amended. This includes authorizing DOL to apply the common performance measures developed for Federal youth activities employment and training programs. The Transfer Act authorizes education and workforce investment, such as occupational skills training, internships, and job shadowing, as well as community service and peer-centered activities. In addition, the Transfer Act allows for greater coordination of the YouthBuild program with the workforce investment system, including local workforce investment boards, and One-Stop Career Centers, and their partner programs. These strengthened connections will enhance the job training and employment opportunities available to participating at-risk youth.

Summary of the Legal Basis: These regulations are authorized by Public Law 109-281, The YouthBuild Transfer Act of 2006, to implement changes to the amendments to subtitle D of Title I of the Workfoce Investment Act of 1998 as amended (WIA).

Alternatives: The public will be afforded an opportunity to provide comments on the YouthBuild program changes when the Department publishes the NPRM in the Federal Register. A Final Rule will be issued after analysis and incorporation of public comments to the NPRM.

Anticipated Costs and Benefits: Preliminary estimates of the anticipated costs of this regulatory action have not been determined at this time and will be determined at a later date.

Risks: This action does not affect public health, safety, or the environment.
