Support Bipartisan National Guard Youth ChalleNGe Program Appropriations Letter

March 14, 2018

We are asking for your signature in a bipartisan letter requesting that the National Guard Youth ChalleNGe Program (NGYCP) receive $175 million and to include key Jobs ChalleNGe language in the FY19 Defense Appropriations bill. The program was funded at
$169 million in the FY18 House Defense Appropriations Bill. Programs in 2016 graduated 9,226 youth nationally, which afforded many of the participants the opportunity to earn a high school diploma or GED, but over 10,000 applicants are rejected every year
due to a lack of funds and capacity. Increased funding will help create new programs, which have a start-up cost of $3-4 million, sought by the states of Ohio, California, Nevada, Pennsylvania, and Missouri. Jobs ChalleNGe language would allow the Department
of Defense to start up to five pilot programs which would act as a post-residential program for NGYCP graduates to gain job skills and/or apprenticeship training. It would help prepare them with the essential skills to go and join the workforce after completion
of both the National Guard Youth ChalleNGe and Jobs ChalleNGe Programs.
