STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
This bill will provide an Idaho income tax credit for donors who
donate to Project Safe Place, a national program with five
participating programs in Idaho. Project Safe Place sites
provide immediate help and resources for young people in crisis.
This program is geared toward short term crisis situations, and
offers young people a chance to work through their crisis with
the aid of supportive adults. Federal funding for this program
has been reduced, making it difficult for them to offer the
needed level of service. Providing a tax credit will stimulate
additional contributions toward their operating expenses.
Contributions are generally small and have been in the $25,000 to
$50,000 range total for all programs. If they doubled, the
fiscal impact to the state would be minimal, since credit is
limited by the current statute.
