Support the Expansion of Educational Opportunities for Rhode Island Students

 

Far too often, families have few – if any – educational options solely because of where they live or what they can afford.

House Bill 7055/Senate Bill 2655 expands Rhode Island's existing tax credit scholarship program so that more kids can find – and afford – an education that meets their needs.

Currently, just over 400 students receive scholarships through the tax-credit scholarship program. With the proposed increase contained in House Bill 7055, more than 1,000 students could be served. The scholarships available through this program can be accessed by families whose household income does not exceed 250 percent of the federal poverty level (approximately $40,000/year for a family of two, $50,000/year for a family of three and $60,000/year for a family of four).

Ask your legislator to support increased funding for tax-credit scholarships!
