(This amendment provides $200,000 each year from the general fund to expand Project SEARCH. This program provides school aged students in their last year of high school with internships in a hospital or other large employer with the goal of securing employment upon graduation. This model has been successful in assisting youth with very significant disabilities to be employed in jobs that would not normally be considered for them. This funding would support five school school systems and assist 810 students.)
