Fiscal Detail and Notes
This bill includes a one-time General Fund appropriation of $175,000 in fiscal year 2024-25 to the University of Maine System for the costs associated with conducting a comprehensive evaluation of the effectiveness of programs with the Department of Corrections that prepare residents of correctional facilities for employment and self-sufficiency upon release from incarceration.
Additional costs to the Departments of Corrections, Labor, Education, Health and Human Services and the Office of the Attorney General associated with consulting with the University of Maine System on the evaluation are expected to be minor and can be absorbed within existing budgeted resources.
