A new Driver Education Reimbursement Grant Program has been established to provide financial assistance to driver’s education programs to help individuals who may not have been able to participate otherwise. The program is part of the Eisenhower Legacy Transportation Program.
The driver education provider will be reimbursed up to $200 per eligible student who completes the program. Some of the eligibility requirement include - the provider must have an approved driver education program or driver training school, maintain records on students for at least five years and certify all students meet the guidelines. Students must also be between the age of 14 and 29 and a resident of Kansas, has not had their driving privilege suspended in any way, and demonstrate financial need.
The deadline for driver education program providers to apply for the program is Oct. 9. More details on the reimbursement grant program and an application can be found here.
