The Project Search Team determines who will be responsible for holding the FTE for the job coach. VR will provide funding assistance for the job coach up to $25,000 per year for the first two (2) years.
Beginning the third year of the Program, VR moves to an outcome based model. VR will pay $5000 per student up to five (5) students. 60% of the total amount will be distributed & paid on a quarterly basis upon receipt of the required report. The remaining 40% is paid upon graduation based upon the number of Project Search graduations capped at five (5).
"New Site Development"
No new sites will be considered for development until the school year 2014-2015. VR will consider $5000.00 towards the cost of training. The balance of training costs will need to be provided by other partners.
A proposal for the funding assistance is submitted to the Fiscal Administrative Specialist before the start of the program. The proposal includes the number of students to be served, an identification of the type of internships and the Team members including roles and responsibilities.
The Fiscal Administrator Specialist will send out the contract along with reporting and payment instructions. Payments are made quarterly.
The contractor submits a quarterly report that includes the names of the students and the progress of the students to the Fiscal Administrator Specialist.
