Insist That Your Legislators
Enact the Education Tax Credit

Take Action Now!

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.

Insist that your legislators enact the Education Tax Credit before they conclude their work in mid-June. After sending your email, please take a moment to call your Assembly member as well. That information, along with a script, will appear after your email is sent.
