The PA Senate recently cut a $20 million increase to the EITC program out of the state budget.
Because of this, thousands of families will not be able to afford to send their child to the school that they believe gives their child the best chance for success. You can help us prevent this loss. Nearly all of the need based scholarships that BLOCS provides come through the Pennsylvania EITC & OSTC Tax Credit Programs. We need this increase to help the over 20,000 low income families that benefit from this program.
These programs allow businesses & individuals to contribute money to BLOCS that result in scholarships to families with a financial need. This cut will mean that we must reduce the dollar amount and number of scholarships we award. There will be less money available for scholarships next year.
Please contact your legislators and let them know that you depend on the EITC and OSTC programs to help local families in need to choose the school that's best for them. We are working diligently in Harrisburg to prevent these cuts from happening, but we need your help.
Please, contact your legislator today and tell them these scholarships are to important Pennsylvania's families!
Thank you for your constant dedication to education in Pennsylvania!
