1. Tax Credit Scholarship Program
Illinois’ Tax Credit Scholarship program generates private dollars for K-12 scholarships to low-income and working-class students who attend qualified non-public schools throughout Illinois. To date, One Chance Illinois’ partner organization Empower Illinois has awarded more than 20,000 scholarships and raised more than $170 million through this program.
The Tax Credit Scholarship Program was established in 2017 by a bipartisan group of lawmakers and maintains diverse support from trade unions, child advocates, passionate parents, business executives, faith leaders, and private school educators. We continue our efforts to not only defend, but also grow and enhance the Tax Credit Scholarship Program.
