On August 2, 2016, the voters of Genesee county will decide whether or not they want to
invest in the youth of Genesee County.
If approved by voters Genesee Opportunity provides a stipend for current-year high school graduates to attend approved colleges and training institutions through funding from countywide tax dollars. Based on 1/4 mill for 20 years, the program would provide $2.3 million dollars annually for the program.
Who qualifies? Every graduating senior from a Genesee County High School. That’s the only requirement even if the student lives outside of Genesee County and graduates from a high school within the county. Furthermore, the money follows the student! As long as it’s an approved college or training institution, it can be located anywhere.
