An organization that is awarded a grant shall prepare and submit an annual report to the
commissioner by September 1 of each year. The report must include a discussion of the following:

area surrounding the organization receiving the grant;
(2) the support services and social services that targeted youth received under the program.
Services may include client needs assessment, preemployment skills such as basic job skills and
behavior, and intermediate needs such as education and chemical dependency treatment;
(3) the type and degree of work experience that program participants received, including real
work experience in both vocational and nonvocational settings;
(4) the amount of training subsidy or stipend that each participant received while
participating in the work experience component. The subsidy or stipend must reflect prevailing

receipt of public assistance is affected. The subsidy or stipend should be structured to include
incentives for progress toward increasing job skills and completing secondary education;

methods should include means of involving state government, businesses, labor organizations,
community groups, and local jurisdictions in assisting in the placement;

collected from program participants after they have completed the program for monitoring the
success of the program;

dependency treatment, vocational rehabilitation services, and protection services;

portion of their income from farming, lack nonfarm work skills, or have limited access to
vocational education or work experience opportunities;
(vi) homeless youth; and
