CONCORD—Today, the New Hampshire House Labor, Industrial and Rehabilitative Services committee held a hearing on SB 12-FN-A, establishing the New Hampshire college graduate retention incentive partnership program and making an appropriation therefor.
After the hearing, prime sponsor Senator Jay Kahn (D-Keene) released the following statement:
“I’m proud to introduce the NH College Graduate Retention Incentive Partnership (GRIP) in the House because it is an important signal that New Hampshire is committed to recruiting and retaining the workforce of tomorrow. SB 12 is an on-switch to encourage New Hampshire college students to include in-state job opportunities in their career planning and transitions. This unique public-private partnership brings together business, education, and government to fill the current lack of incentives to attract and retain 2- and 4-year college graduates New Hampshire employers need.”
