|Statement of Purpose|
This is a fiscal year 2006 supplemental appropriation for the Scholarships & Grants program. This program, administered by the Office of the State Board of Education, manages ten scholarship and grant programs available to students attending Idaho's postsecondary educational institutions.
Specifically, this provides an additional $101,800 in General Funds for the Leveraging Educational Assistance Program (LEAP). This is a federal grant program with a state match requirement that is available to students with demonstrated financial need. Idaho's match for LEAP involves a Maintenance of Effort (MOE) based upon the average of the previous three years state provided match. In order to continue receiving federal LEAP funds, the state level of match cannot drop below this MOE amount. In addition, Idaho must be fully-matched in LEAP in order to participate in SLEAP, another federal/state educational grant program. During the budget development cycle for FY 2006, an error occurred and the full funding needed for LEAP did not get included in the budget request. This supplemental would address 100% of the shortfall in state matching funds for LEAP that would otherwise occur in FY2006.
There is a fiscal impact to the General Fund in the amount of $101,800.
