State Rep. Joe Sosnowski (R-Rockford) spoke at a Capitol press conference on Tuesday in support of extending and making permanent the Invest in Kids Scholarship Program. Without immediate action by the Illinois General Assembly, the program is scheduled to expire at the end of the year.
Invest in Kids has awarded more than 37,000 grants to low-income families since it launched in 2018. The scholarships for K-12 students can cover up to 100% of private school tuition up to a maximum of the average Illinois cost to educate. The Invest in Kids scholarship program is 100% need-based. K-12 students from low-income and working-class families are eligible to receive a tax credit scholarship.
