Opportunity Denied: To Meet Demand, Tax Credit Scholarship Caps Must Expand

The 2018-19 state budget included a $25 million expansion of Pennsylvania’s Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) program. This will allow up to 15,000 additional students to receive scholarships. While helpful, 52,857 student tax credit scholarship applications were denied last year—clearly more must be done to meet demand for this school choice program.
