State Representative Marlene Anielski (R-Walton Hills) today applauded the House passage of House Bill 107, which creates a $1 million pilot project to provide grants to certain businesses for employing high school students for career exploration internships.


The grants are limited to businesses that operate primarily in Ohio and would equal 50 percent of the wages paid to student interns with a maximum of $5,000. Prior to being eligible for a grant, a business must submit both an application and a completion report to the Development Services Agency. Businesses can be eligible for no more than three grants a year.


"My amendment that was accepted allows all juniors and seniors to participate in the internships," said Rep. Anielski. "We need to continue to be innovative for our future generations while simultaneously creating career opportunities."


The project would be funded by money left over in a casino licensing fund that was earmarked for workforce development efforts. Grants would be distributed on a first-come, first-serve basis.


HB 107 passed unanimously and will now be sent to the Ohio Senate for further consideration.
