TAX CREDIT SCHOLARSHIP INFORMATION
To: Current and Prospective Catholic School Parents
Over the past several weeks we have been sharing important information regarding the Invest in Kids Act. This legislation can help to provide scholarships for parents of students who currently attend or plan on attending a non-public school in Illinois.
The application process with Big Shoulders Fund will be completed online at www.bigshouldersfundsgo.org. The application process will open Monday, January 22, 2018.
The application process with Empower Illinois will be completed online at www.empowerillinois.org. The application process will open Tuesday, January 30, 2018.
The following materials are needed to apply for a tax credit scholarship as soon as applications are accepted:
- Copy of 2016 federal tax return or 1099, W-2, or year-end pay stubs
- Proof of Illinois residency (driver’s license, state ID or utility bill)
- Documentation of student age (birth certificate, federal/state ID or passport)
- If available, a letter of acceptance or enrollment at an eligible, participating, non-public school
- A valid email address
Any current or prospective parent who would like to apply for a scholarship is welcome to stop in our school building on either the 22nd or 30th for help with the application process.
