Idaho launch grant program
IDAHO LAUNCH GRANT PROGRAM – Amends existing law to revise provisions regarding the Idaho Launch Grant Program and the In-Demand Careers Fund.

RS31727 / H0741

This legislation makes changes to the Idaho Launch program. These include changes to the definition of In Demand Careers to include more factors instead of just the number of job openings, excludes careers that require graduate level education from eligibility, changes an eligibility date to align with schools whose school year goes into June, and gives the council a legal mechanism for means testing.

This amendment causes no additional expenditure of funds at the state or local level of government, nor does it cause an increase or decrease in revenue for state or local government, therefore the legislation has no fiscal impact.
