Help for Families
Paying Tuition is Within Reach!
In the final days
of this legislative session in Albany, Governor Cuomo and key
legislators are leading the fight to enact the Education Tax Credit.
The governor's plan, called the Parental Choice in Education Act,
will help keep Catholic schools affordable. The Act provides $150
million in education tax credits annually that will provide:
Tax credits directly to low-income families who send their children
to Catholic and other schools,
Scholarships to students from low- and middle-income families to
attend a school of their choice,
Donations to public schools for enhanced educational programming,
Tax credits to teachers for their out-of-pocket classroom expenses.
But we need your
Speaker Carl Heastie and some Assembly Democrats are blocking this
important bill. They are blocking this bill for one
simple reason: the public school teachers’ union lobbyists don't
want parents to get any help with sending their children to a school
of their choice.
