4.17 Expenditure Requirements for the Youth Program

4.17.2 Expenditure Requirement for Youth Work Experience

Effective date: January 1, 2019

Local WDBs must expend at least 20 percent of their annual WIOA Youth formula allocation on paid and unpaid work experiences for in-school youth (ISY) and out-of-school youth (OSY) during the two-year grant period.1 Local WDBs cannot count leveraged resources toward this expenditure requirement.2

Program expenditures that count towards the minimum 20 percent are as follows:

Note: Program expenditures for supportive services do not count towards the minimum 20 percent work experience expenditure requirement, even if the supportive services assist the youth to participate in the work experience.4

Local WDB administrative expenses are not included in the 20 percent work experience expenditure calculation; therefore, the work experience expenditure rate is calculated after subtracting funds spent on administrative costs.5
