Kuster bill would promote partnerships


WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Rep. Annie Kuster, D-N.H., on Thursday introduced legislation that would provide tax incentives to businesses that partner with community colleges and other educational institutions to strengthen workforce development for students.

Kuster's bill, the Workforce Development Investment Act, would provide tax credits to employers who collaborate with educational institutions to equip students with the skills they need to compete for well-paying jobs.

The act would provide up to $10,000 in annual tax credits to employers that partner with community colleges or other institutions of higher education to improve workforce development for students by helping develop curriculum; assisting with instruction in the classroom, and providing internships, apprenticeships, or other hands-on educational opportunities for students

Over the last few months, Kuster has met with staff and students at Keene State College's Regional Center for Advanced Manufacturing (RCAM), Nashua Community College (NCC), and New Hampshire Technical Institute (NHTI), as well as advanced manufacturers across the Granite State.
