We wanted to offer a plug to the folks over at Step Up For Students, who are hosting an online Q & A about the state’s tax credit scholarship program Tuesday.
Doug Tuthill, president of Step Up For Students, will answer questions about the program at redefinED.org beginning at 10:30 a.m. Step Up For Students is the non-profit which administers the tax credit scholarship program.
Companies receive a dollar-for-dollar deduction from a roster of taxes in exchange for donations to the scholarship program. For more details on how the scholarship program works, click here.
The program will serve more than 60,000 low-income students when classes start this fall. Each time lawmakers have expanded the tax credit cap, students have quickly snatched up the new scholarships.
