K-12 students from low-income families are eligible to receive a Tax Credit Scholarship.  See the chart below for more details.

From January to April, priority will be given to students who:

  • Are members of a household whose previous year’s total annual income does not exceed 185% of the federal poverty level; or
  • Reside within a focus district and whose household income is within 300% of the federal poverty level. See the list of focus districts here.

 

After April 1, all other qualifying students will be considered for scholarships, subject to availability of funding.

 

 2017 Federal Poverty Level (FPL) Chart
Household members 185% FPL 250% FPL 300% FPL
1 $22,311 $30,150 $36,180
2 $30,044 $40,600 $48,720
3 $37,777 $51,050 $61,260

7 $68,709 $92,850 $111,420
8 $76,442 $103,300 $123,960

Note: If more than eight people in your household, for each additional person, add $4,180 to the baseline FPL number for a family of 8 ($41,320) and then multiply by 1.85, 2.5 and 3 to arrive at the corresponding income limits.

 

For 2018-2019 scholarships, 2016 or 2017 federal adjusted gross income is the basis. This amount does not include the income of children under 18 attending elementary or secondary school on a full-time basis.  Foster children are deemed to have a household income that does not exceed 185% of the federal poverty level.
