Budget legislation approved in Ohio has expanded eligibility for the state’s EdChoice program to all students.

According to the American Federation for Children, “Scholarship amounts will be income-based. Students whose family’s income is at or below 450% of the Federal Poverty Level (FPL), or about $135,000 for a family of four, will be eligible to receive the full scholarship amount, and students whose family’s household income is above 450% FPL will be eligible for voucher amounts decreased on a sliding scale.”

Eric “Yitz” Frank, President of School Choice Ohio and leader of the Ohio CAPE, said:

“HB33 includes the largest expansion of educational choice in the state’s history, making Ohio one of the country’s leaders in school choice. This legislation ensures that every family and student can choose the education that best meets their unique needs.”
