Budget negotiations for the 2018-2019 fiscal year are taking place soon, so NOW is the time to remind members of the General Assembly to support an increase to the widely successful Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) and Opportunity Scholarship Tax Credit (OSTC) programs.
Each year more than 45,000 families get a scholarship that permits parents to send their children to a school that best meets their needs. It gives these families a true choice in the right educational path for their children.
The tax credit scholarships have been an investment that has paid dividends for students seeking a Catholic or other private education in Pennsylvania. Every Catholic school in all corners of the Commonwealth benefits from the EITC or OSTC programs.
The EITC and the OSTC programs have always achieved bipartisan support and have been acclaimed as two of the best educational programs Pennsylvania offers to students in both public and private schools.
We need your help to urge all lawmakers to invest in success and support the expansion of the Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) and Opportunity Scholarship Tax Credit (OSTC) programs by voting YES on a state budget that includes an increase in the programs’ line items.
